As you start out as a pharmacy professional our learning programmes can equip you to demonstrate your competence to offer new services in the community. Our programmes can also help you extend your clinical knowledge and confidence if you provide pharmacy services in a secondary care setting. 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.
The Royal Pharmaceutical Society has produced a framework for professional development in foundation practice across pharmacy. This framework may help you to decide which areas of learning you would like to work on most.

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.
