What our students say...

Owen Preston, T Level Construction

"Construction is my passion. The course is really informative and the tutor support is unbelievable. I chose the T Level Construction at B&FC because the course focuses on a variety of different areas and has allowed me so many opportunities."

"We recently selected B&FC as Vodafone Group’s primary learning provider for our level 6 degree apprentices. The feedback B&FC received from current apprentices and partnering organisations was amongst the best for the Level 6 Digital and Technology Solutions Degree. Since engaging with B&FC they have been nothing short of brilliant and we are so happy to have brought them on board; I am sure they will provide a fantastic learning experience for our apprentices.”
Vodafone Group Services Limited
“Blackpool and The Fylde College have always provided an outstanding service and we cannot recommend them highly enough. A professional, friendly team who are easy to deal with and quickly resolve any queries we may have. Their courses are well run and the onsite new facilities are fantastic.”

Congratulations to our T level students on their fantastic results

Our T level students have performed brilliantly for the second year running. We've achieved a 100% pass rate in Education, Childcare, Science and Health with 87% of students in Education and Childcare gaining a Merit grade or higher.

Students studying the T Level in Design, Surveying and Planning for Construction have also excelled with 83% receiving higher grades.

Our results sit several percentage points above the national average and we're thrilled that of the students who are progressing onto a degree over half are planning to stay here with us.
