Pre-registration Pharmacist Supervisor (Tutor) Training programme launched
Keele University has been working in partnership with Health Education Thames Valley in developing some e-learning for Pre-registration Pharmacist Supervisors (Tutors). Health Education England has now launched this training to support new pharmacy pre-registration tutors in delivering educational supervision.
The programme aims to educate or refresh pre-registration tutors of the knowledge and skills required to provide effective supervision to pre-registration pharmacist trainees as they progress through their one-year pre-registration training programme.
Tutors need to provide trainees with clinical, educational and pastoral support and guidance. A pre-registration tutor must be equipped with the skills to provide the right level of support, so that the trainee can successfully move from being a pharmacy graduate to a qualified pharmacist, who can then go on to register for the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) and join the pharmacy profession.
The sessions within the programme are delivered in two phases:
Session 1 – General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) Resources
Session 2 – Roles, Responsibilities and Relationships
Session 3 – Developing a Training Plan
Session 4 – The Progress Review
Session 5 – Evidence of Competence and How to Assess it
Session 6 – Feedback and Support
