There will be times when you may not want to enrol in a full qualification and just need to complete one or two units from the Community Pharmacy qualifications to increase your skills or take on a new role in the pharmacy. You may need to complete the dispensary units so that you can take on the role of dispensary assistant or you may need specialist skills in recruitment, stock control or product knowledge.
Individual units also provide the benefit of completing an accredited and nationally recognised unit without having to undertake a full qualification. Units completed may be credited towards a full qualification in the future.
Review the comprehensive list of units and select those that will help consolidate your role in the pharmacy.
As this is a single unit of study this course must be completed within 3 months. This will depend on the level of experience and knowledge of the learner.
There are no formal entry requirements for this course. However students need to be employed in a community pharmacy.
This course is delivered via workbook and completed whilst working in a community pharmacy. A verbal assessment with a Guild Trainer and a supervisors evidence report will also be required.
