Our study programme aims to provide trainees with high quality learning experiences throughout the training year.
The curriculum is based on six core interlinked themes which are based on the Interim Learning Outcomes of the new GPhC standards for the Initial Education and Training of Pharmacists.
Trainees attend a series of study blocks which provide group-based interactive learning facilitated by expert practitioners.
We use innovative learning approaches that support all learning styles and the focus is on application of knowledge and skills in practice.
Learning is supported by a virtual learning environment on UEA Blackboard which is also the platform used to provide GPhC style practise assessments throughout the training year.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, all study blocks were delivered via UEA Blackboard Collaborate and other interactive technologies to support small-group learning. It is hoped hat a blended learning approach will be followed for the delivery of the 2021/22 Foundation training study programme.
