Pharmacy Services L3
This is an interesting and challenging course that will equip you with the essential skills you need to become a registered Pharmacy Technician with the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC). It is an exciting time to be a part of the pharmacy profession, especially as a qualified technician, with new roles and responsibilities increasingly becoming available to pharmacy support staff.
This course consists of two separate qualifications both of which are needed to become a registered pharmacy technician. The first is the new Level 3 Diploma in Pharmacy Service Skills; this is a work based qualification which requires you to collect evidence to demonstrate your competence in essential pharmacy skills such as dispensing medicines, counselling patients, receiving and maintaining pharmaceutical stock and providing pharmaceutical advice. The course is assessed through the completion of a portfolio of work-based evidence.
The second qualification is the Technical Certificate (accredited underpinning knowledge). This course provides you with all the theoretical knowledge you will need to carry out your day to day activities as a pharmacy technician. You will have the opportunity to learn about the various aspects of pharmacy including pharmaceutical science, pharmacy practice, pharmaceutics, laws and ethics, actions and uses of drugs and disease management. The course is assessed through the completion of multiple- choice questions and written assignments.
