New educational supervisor training offer for community pharmacy professionals

NHS England are offering 1,000 fully funded module places to support educational supervisor training for community pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. The training will be delivered by ProPharmace from September 2023.

The offer provides 500 places for Designated Prescribing Practitioners (DPP) and 500 places for other educational supervisors, including Designated Supervisors (DSs).

The training is designed to ensure that pharmacists and pharmacy technicians involved in educational supervision are confident to provide support and developing aid to the pharmacy workforce within community pharmacy.

Regulatory changes in 2019 mean that experienced independent prescribers of any professional can apply for DPP training to support community pharmacists to become independent prescribers.
