In October 2017, The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) published revised Initial Education and Training Standards for Pharmacy Technicians (IET). These Standards will ensure that pharmacy technicians have the right knowledge and skills for current and future workforce requirements at point of registration with the GPhC. Health Education England (HEE) has commissioned Skills for Health to facilitate the collaborative development of a new qualification to meet the IET Standards for pharmacy technicians. Skills for Health has worked with Awarding Organisations and subject matter experts to develop the qualification which will be made available in England and Wales by Awarding Organisations in 2019.

The draft qualification units are now available for consultation until 12pm noon on Monday 30th July. To access the online survey, please click here https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/4380586/Qualification-for-Pharmacy-Technicians
