The Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) has been awarded a contract to deliver a new e-portfolio for HEE’s Trainee Pharmacist Foundation Year Programme.
The three-year contract awarded to RPS will start in August and will underpin a long-term education pathway.
The e-portfolio will enable trainees to document their learning and development, map their learning and assessment activities, review their progress, and achieve sign off for completion of the interim standards for initial education and training of pharmacists so they can sit the GPhC registration assessment.
Gail Fleming, Director of Education and Professional Development at RPS, said: “We are delighted to have won the tender to support the development of future pharmacists after redeveloping our e-portfolio programme last year.
“Not only will this enable trainees to seamlessly transition into post-registration programmes, it also strengthens the relationship RPS already has with HEE.”
In the meantime, trainees can start planning and recording their assessment activities by downloading the assessment tools on the HEE website.
