Essential Skills – English and Maths

Teaching and Learning Methods

This is a full time course involving 3 days a week in College and 2 days a week in industry.

At Blackpool and The Fylde College we recognise that all students learn differently and for some it may be a return to the classroom following a break from formal learning.  Our tutors work with you to ensure that their teaching methods support the way that you like to learn.

You will work collaboratively with your peers in group work, presentations and within practical sessions. There will be dedicated individual/self-study time on your programme which needs to be supported by your own study out of the College learning environments.  E-learning is also a key element of all our courses and will involve you using our Canvas platform for independent study and learning.

Within the curriculum we also use a range of on-line apps to support, enhance and motivate learning.  Your tutors will be support you with new technologies used in the classroom.
