Class of 2019

At our 2019 Higher Education Awards Ceremony – held at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens – more than 1,100 graduates received their degrees. They were watched by several thousand proud family members, friends and College staff.

Some 140 graduates passed with first-class honours. Among this year’s graduates was the first cohort to complete a Blackpool and The Fylde College awarded programme – the Foundation Degree in Sports Coaching and Performance Science – following B&FC being granted Foundation Degree awarding powers in 2016.

The degrees were conferred by Prof Dame Sue Black, Pro-Vice Chancellor (Education) at Lancaster University.

The Guest of Honour for the ceremonies was Dawn Childs, Group Engineering Director, Merlin Entertainment Group PLC. Dawn was the first female head of engineering at a major international airport and has been instrumental in developing women in engineering as well as attracting more women into the sector.
