Plan your next steps at any stage of your career

We are here to help you fulfil your potential and develop your career, whether you are just starting out, returning after a break, looking to specialise or wanting to gain professional recognition.

Congratulations if you have just passed your registration exam. As you enter your foundation years we anticipate that you will be familiar with our face-to-face learning events (whether focal point or public health) and will be ready to engage in developing experience in pharmacy practice. You can find out more about how we can support you through your foundation years by exploring this pathway. Have a look at our Providing NHS and public health pharmacy services pathway if you are keen to demonstrate your competence to offer new services.

If you are a more experienced pharmacy professional, you may want take stock of your career and reflect on what steps you want to take now. Why not explore areas of this pathway that are new to you and consider whether they offer a new role for you? Perhaps now is the time for you to start exploring practice as a prescriber or to learn more about careers in general practice.

Whatever stage of your career, perhaps now is the time to reflect on how you can support the learning and development of your wider team and drive forwards their learning to improve your service delivery and quality. Have you tried our Helping others learn programme?

We work closely with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) and the Association of Pharmacy Technicians UK (APTUK) to ensure that our learning resources support your development as a professional and a leader, and link to national priorities and guidelines.

We also provide resources for you if you want to move from one sector of the profession to another, return to practice after a break or work in the UK for the first time.
