Teaching and Learning Methods

At Blackpool and The Fylde College we recognise that all students learn differently and our expert tutors will work with you to ensure their teaching methods support the way you like to learn.

A key method used is demonstrations, which enables you to see the practical skill being used first before you have a go at practising it yourself. Other methods include group work, presentations and practical sessions. 

The course includes dedicated individual/self-study time which needs to be supported by your own study outside of College. E-learning also features and will involve you using our Moodle (virtual learning) platform for both independent study and learning.

Your tutors will be support you with new technologies used in the classroom, including online apps used to support, enhance and motivate learning.  

This course is delivered over 2.5 days (12 hours) a week in class, with a further 3 hours a week needed for independent study. Class contact time totals 400 hours over the entire course.
