Training School status for early career pharmacists

Pharmacy graduates already have a bright future, with a 100% employability rate when they finish at LJMU. Now the School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences is offering additional support within these careers through being one of the first to gain Foundation Training School status from the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS).

LJMU’s position as an RPS Accredited Training School will allow for specific support and development for those in the very early stages of their career: their ‘first 1,000 days’ of practice. The Foundation Pharmacy Programme is a workplace education model, allowing pharmacists to build on the knowledge, skills, behaviours and experiences developed during undergraduate and pre-registration years, in their working environment.

By seeking RPS accreditation, HEIs and training providers demonstrate their commitment to the delivery of high quality professional development to pharmacists.

Professor Satya Sarker, Director, LJMU School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences said: "I am delighted to know that the School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences at Liverpool John Moores University will be one of the first three awarded RPS Foundation School status by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society. This status certainly demonstrates our strong commitment as a School towards advancement of pharmacy education and the pharmacy profession as a whole."
