CPPE, and our partners, have worked together to deliver the Newly qualified pharmacist programme, which will open for registration on 15 September 2021.
The fully funded 12-month Newly qualified pharmacist programme is for pharmacists who completed pre-registration training in the 2020/21 cohort, and are working in independent and small/medium multiple community pharmacies (including locums).
The overall aim of the programme is to support newly qualified pharmacists to develop, and demonstrate, confidence and competence in core areas of community pharmacy practice. The programme is designed to support learners to become better equipped to adapt and deliver safe and effective patient care, at this pivotal stage of their career.
The programme takes a blended learning approach and offers a mix of online learning, workshops, assessment and work-based support, through a designated CPPE education supervisor.
The programme is aligned to the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) Post-registration Foundation Curriculum, which is underpinned by the RPS Foundation Pharmacist Framework (2019). This framework was produced from an evidence based role analysis of the current and future roles (until 2023), of early careers pharmacists practising in all sectors across the UK.
The Newly qualified pharmacist programme will be a pharmacist’s first step in their post-registration professional development journey, and provides comprehensive learning to support pharmacists’ springboard towards Independent Prescribing (IP) training.
The programme will start on 01 November 2021.
You must be on the GPhC register as a pharmacist to apply. Provisionally registered pharmacists are not eligible.
