Teaching and Learning Methods
At Blackpool and The Fylde College we recognise that all students learn differently and our tutors work with you to ensure that their teaching methods support the way that you like to learn.
This course consists of 3 hours per week workshop/classroom based learning.
One key teaching and learning method is that of demonstrations. Your tutors ensure that demonstrations are used whenever possible so you can see the practical skill being used so you can then practice the skill.
Following demonstrations, you will then have hands on practical time where you will be implementing the skill learned.
