An ideal way to support your trainee pharmacists is to encourage them to join the CPPE trainee pharmacist Facebook page, where they will find CPPE and peer support. You can keep up to date with changes in pharmacy, medicines and the NHS by taking part in our regular e-challenge quiz.
Make sure that the trainee pharmacists that you are working with have access to our resources. More than seven out of ten trainees in England use CPPE, but this means that three out of ten could be missing out.
You can use CPPE learning materials to help your trainees demonstrate their GPhC performance standards. You can direct them to our online learning to keep up to date with clinical and therapeutics topics and improve personal development, communication, management and consultation skills. Our Gateway pages (NHS priorities; Clinical pharmacy; and Public health accessible from the top of the CPPE homepage) provide portals to CPPE learning materials and signpost to national guidance and tools.
Promote theLearningpharmacy.com™ to your trainees as a tool for their own learning and as a way for them to support others in the pharmacy team to learn.

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.
