Welcome to our new website
The trainee pharmacists enrolled on the NPA’s Foundation training programme benefit from a range of training resources letting them learn in the way that’s most effective for them.
Trainee pharmacists join us for three face-to-face study days at their nearest venue from a choice of three locations across England. We book accessible high quality hotel/conference venues, close to rail links and with parking. They will also attend three virtual study days.
By attending these study days, students will:
Trainee pharmacists can gain confidence in the practical elements of the pharmacist’s job role so that they feel prepared once qualified.
Practical stations will test a range of skills, including clinical, consultation, problem solving, and dealing with difficult situations.
These enable trainee pharmacists to apply learning to real-life situations, and to gain a greater depth of understanding of topics.
We provide exam style questions to trainees during each study day. These include single best answer questions, extended matching questions and calculations. Same day feedback is given, with clear explanations as to how to reach the correct answer.
In addition, we host a full-day mock exam mapped to the GPhC assessment framework which is included within the course fee.
Six live interactive webinars enable us to supplement student learning with more content than we can fit into the study days.
Trainees have the flexibility to log in from their computer or smartphone and attend from anywhere 24/7.
Webinars get recorded, so they can be viewed later if the student cannot attend or if they want to watch again later in the year to assist with their revision.
