The Health Education England (HEE) Interim Foundation Pharmacist Programme (IFPP) will support the 2019/20 cohort of pre-registration pharmacists whose training and registration was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic to make the transition from pre-registration trainee, through provisional registration, to becoming a fully registered foundation pharmacist and beyond. The Foundation pharmacist programme 2020/21 delivered by CPPE is part of the HEE IFPP.
There are two parts to the IFPP:
More information about foundation training with CPPE is available on the Training programme page.
HEE is funding CPPE to deliver foundation training for provisionally registered pharmacists (or newly qualified pharmacists who passed the registration assessment in March 2021) who work in community pharmacy, primary care and Health in Justice. Some employers, such as Boots, have internal foundation programmes and are therefore not eligible to apply for foundation training via CPPE.
Applications for cohort 2 are now closed
Cohort 3 starts: April 2021
Applications for cohort 3 are open and will close 10 May 2021
