Take part in the consultation on draft qualification units for Pharmacy Technicians.

Gateway Qualifications is currently working in conjunction with Skills for Health and other awarding organisations to develop a qualification to support the Pharmacy Technician apprenticeship standard.

Together, we have developed draft units for a qualification to support achievement of this standard and are keen to receive feedback from centres on these.

Consultation on draft qualification units for Pharmacy Technicians

In October 2017, The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) published revised Initial Education and Training Standards for Pharmacy Technicians (IET). These Standards will ensure that pharmacy technicians have the right knowledge and skills for current and future workforce requirements at point of registration with the GPhC. Health Education England (HEE) has commissioned Skills for Health to facilitate the collaborative development of a new qualification to meet the IET Standards for pharmacy technicians. Skills for Health has worked with Awarding Organisations and subject matter experts to develop the qualification which will be made available in England and Wales by Awarding Organisations in 2019.

The draft qualification units are now available for consultation until 12pm noon on Monday 30th July. Update: This survey is closed and can no longer be completed.

For any queries about the survey, please contact qualifications@skillsforhealth.org.uk

If you would like register your interest in delivering this qualification when it is available, or to run any of our other qualifications supporting Health and Care Apprenticeships, please  complete our enquiry form and a member of our Business Development team will be in touch to discuss your requirements.
