Our Return to practice course supports pharmacy professionals (pharmacists and pharmacy technicians):
If you have been out of practice or off the register for more than a year and want to return to pharmacy practice to provide NHS services in England within the next six months, this course is for you. Read our customer testimonials.
This is a tutor-led online course delivered over 12 weeks with four full day and two shorter online workshops supplemented with our Canvas e-course platform. You will learn from a range of purpose designed online and printed materials. This includes presentations, scenarios and simulations, quizzes, and discussions.
The full day online workshops are the essential element of the course, and you must attend each day to progress. The Canvas course has flexible access, and you will use it to prepare for the online workshops and for future practice.
If you are not currently on the General Pharmaceutical Council register, you should also consider joining our Return to the register course. These courses are designed to complement each other and can be done in either order.
