  • Apprentice attend a college course for one day a week
  • Apprentice must be recruited and start the programme by March 2022 and complete the training programme within 24 months.
What funding is available and how can it be used?
To support the urgent need to increase the pharmacy technician workforce, HEE is offering a financial training contribution to support sites in developing a PTPT programme, that meets the HEE quality framework.
The annual offer is a training contribution of:
• Year 1 – £22,772 per PTPT
• Year 2 – £23,327 per PTPT
The funding can be used flexibly and is intended to contribute to the cost of developing and running a two-year programme. The training contribution may be used towards the cost of salary, infrastructure costs such as practice supervision and/or educational supervision or any other costs associated with the PTPT successfully completing this training programme/apprenticeship.
Two payments will be made to the employer/system lead who must assure financial arrangements are in place to support the PTPT throughout the duration of the programme. It is up to partnerships to agree how these funds are utilised amongst partners for programme delivery.
Application is via an expression of interest submitted this online application form. Before completing the application form it is advised that the employer/system lead complete the provided application template (Appendix 1). The application template should be completed in collaboration with the other partner/s and be retained by the employer/system lead.
