CPPE Foundation Pharmacist Programme – applications open

CPPE Foundation Pharmacist Programme – applications open

August 26, 2020

Health Education England (HEE) has provided funding for CPPE to deliver the Foundation pharmacist programme. Provisionally registered pharmacists (PRPs) who work in community pharmacy are eligible for the Foundation pharmacist programme 2020/21. Some employers, such as Boots, have internal programmes which will take priority over the CPPE programme. PRPs who have access to internal programmes should use those rather than the CPPE programme.

The overall aim of the Foundation pharmacist programme 2020/21 is to support the 2019/20 cohort of pre-registration pharmacists, to develop and demonstrate competence in core areas of community pharmacy practice. Mapped to the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) Foundation Pharmacist Framework 2019, the programme is designed to support learners to develop the necessary knowledge, skills, behaviours, abilities, values, attitudes, beliefs and experience to deliver excellent patient care.

The 12-month, fully-funded programme takes a blended learning approach and offers a comprehensive mix of online learning activities, workshops, communities of practice, assessment and work-based support.

Pharmacists will be allocated a designated CPPE education supervisor who will review their progress in practice and provide them with feedback and support to develop your confidence and competence to deliver high-quality community pharmacy services.

Applications for the programme are now open and the programme will start on 7 September 2020.
