GPhC revision of the standards for the initial education and training of Pharmacy Technicians

The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) recently held a meeting for awarding bodies where they advised on the future timescales for the revision of the standards for the initial education and training of Pharmacy Technicians. Please find this timetable attached below for your information:

GPhC timelines for revision of standards

You can access the current standards for the initial education and training of Pharmacy Technicians by clicking on the following hyperlink – Pharmacy Technicians

Please note that SQA’s portfolio of Pharmacy qualifications will require revision once these updated standards are released from GPhC.¬† I hope this information is useful in the meantime.
