Our e-courses are online programmes that run for approximately six to eight weeks. They allow a deeper learning experience while remaining flexible by allowing you to participate at times that suit you.

Join a tutor-supported course and learn alongside other pharmacy professionals. You will have the opportunity to take part in active discussion forums, problem-solving activities and interactions that enable you to share best practice. You will have the support of an online tutor and other pharmacists with similar interests.

You will be able to book on to a tutor-supported course for up to two weeks after the start date shown..

Some of our e-course materials are also available for self-directed learning when the tutor-supported version of the course is not running.  If you take this route you will not be able to engage with other pharmacists on the course or an online tutor, but you will have access to all the same high-quality materials that you can work through at a time and pace that suits you. The following e-courses are available as self-directed versions:

  • Leadership for Healthy Living Pharmacy
  • Kent Healthy Living Pharmacy programme
  • General practice – the fundamentals of working with GPs

Learning levels explained

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.
