Adult Students

Full and part time courses are available in a wide range of subject areas whether you want to improve your chances of finding work, change career or develop a new skill. Come to an Open Day or Meet the Experts event to get advice from a subject specialist about the best route to making your career goals a reality.

At B&FC, it’s never too late to develop your knowledge, skills and experience. We offer a whole raft of qualifications, designed to help you embark on a new career or progress in the one you already have.

Study can be full or part-time and depending on your circumstances you might be eligible for an Advanced Learner Loan, help with funding, or help towards the costs of childcare.

Our short community courses can be a great way to try out a potential new career area or simply develop a new skill. Available at venues throughout the Fylde, you can choose from a variety of subjects.

Short employability courses are also on offer to give you the skills and confidence to get a foot onto the career ladder or to venture back into the job market after being away from it for a time.

A degree-level qualification can make you more productive in your current role and equip you to progress to more senior and better-paid positions.

We have a wide variety of courses at all levels - levels explained.
