CPPE launches community pharmacy technician: advancing your role learning programme

The Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE), in collaboration with the Pharmacy Integration Programme at NHS England, has launched the community pharmacy technician: advancing your role learning programme.

The programme is designed to help community pharmacy technicians develop the skills and confidence to support effective service delivery in community pharmacy. Pharmacy technicians who currently work in community pharmacy and are looking to upskill themselves to develop their roles in practice can apply to take part.

The fully funded course is made up of four main components, including:

  • A self-directed e-course and learning needs assessment at the start of the programme;
  • A one face-to-face workshop on clinical assessment skills (CAS);
  • Workplace practice of CAS; and
  • A two-hour workshop for reflection.

Optional monthly peer support sessions, providing the opportunity for pharmacy technicians to develop their professional network and establish communities of practice will also be available.

Applications are now open, with the programme beginning on 28th September 2023.
