As you start out as a pharmacy professional, our learning programmes can equip you with the skills needed to offer new services in the community, or to extend your clinical knowledge within secondary care settings. We facilitate workshops and events throughout the country to encourage you to learn as part of a team and to network with colleagues. We also have a series of guides to support you in your personal development.
You can keep up to date with clinical recommendations by working through our interactive PDF, What’s new in BNF? It contains ten case studies which focus on clinical changes in the latest version of the BNF. We release a new version of What’s new in BNF? each time a new edition of the BNF is published.
We have a variety of resources that will help you develop a range of knowledge, skills and behaviours linked to the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) Foundation practice framework, which has been developed to help you decide which areas of learning you would like to work on most.
For foundation pharmacists working in community practice, within a small multiple or independent, you may be interested in undertaking the Foundation pharmacists training pathway (FPTP). You can find further details of the pathway, and how to apply on the Foundation pharmacist training pathway web page.

We recognise that people have different learning needs. Some of our programmes contain core learning while others deliver more complex learning that is only required to support certain roles. We have three categories of learning (1,2,3) and have allocated each programme to an appropriate category.
Core learning. Builds on limited knowledge. Some background reading may be required.
Application of knowledge. Assumes prior learning.
Supporting specialisms. We may not be the provider and will signpost you to other learning providers.
Learning programmes from other providers which complement your learning.
