Newly qualified pharmacist programme from CPPE

A fully-funded, twelve-month programme for newly qualified pharmacists, 2020/21 cohort

CPPE, and partners, are providing a Newly qualified pharmacist programme.

This is a fully-funded, twelve-month education programme for newly qualified pharmacists who completed pre-registration training in the 2020/21 cohort, and who are working in independent and small/medium multiple community pharmacies (including locums). Applicants must be on the GPhC register as a pharmacist; provisionally registered pharmacists are not eligible to apply.

The aim of the Newly qualified pharmacist programme is to support pharmacists to develop, and demonstrate, confidence and competence in core areas of community pharmacy practice. The programme is designed to support newly qualified pharmacists 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 comprehensive mix of online learning activities, workshops, assessment, and work-based support. Each pharmacist will be allocated a designated CPPE education supervisor, who will review their progress in practice and provide feedback and support.

Why should newly qualified pharmacists apply?

1. A flying start to their professional development journey
The Newly qualified pharmacist programme supports pharmacists to become better equipped to deliver safe and effective patient care and provides comprehensive learning to support their springboard towards Independent Prescribing (IP) training.

2. Structured professional development 
The programme introduces newly qualified pharmacists to the fundamentals of being a successful and competent pharmacist through a series of online learning modules, self-reflection, assessments, and education supervisor support.

3. Increased confidence
Learners tell us they are more confident pharmacists to deliver high quality community pharmacy services as a result of completing a structured training programme with CPPE. They had the opportunity to develop and improve their intrapersonal, clinical, and patient-centred skills in a supportive environment.

The programme is open for applications from 15 September 2021. Visit the CPPE website for details on how to register.

The programme will start on 01 November 2021.
