Pre-registration training programme

Our pre-registration training programme provides the perfect foundation, training and support for you to become a responsible pharmacist with a commercial and clinical focus. Applications are currently closed.

You'll be working alongside experts who are dedicated to helping you succeed. With support from your Pharmacist tutor, colleagues and managers, you'll have every opportunity to build up your experience. 

Once your pre-registration year is up, you’ll have the opportunity to progress your career typically by moving into a Relief Manager role. This role will enable you to develop your clinical skills, take on additional management responsibility and build your confidence. You'll continue to grow your commercial knowledge and people management skills and, when you're ready, your line manager will discuss further development opportunities which could include our expert clinical practice programme or Future Leaders programme.

To give you an insight into what the relationship between a tutor and trainee during your Pre-registration year is like, our Graduate Attraction Advisor, Amy, spoke to Pre-registration tutor William Pike, and trainee Ben Hilborne.

What our previous trainees say

My tutor was really good, eager to teach me everything around the pharmacy and the business. Not only staying in the dispensary, but also learning the business side of the pharmacy.

I’ve felt comfortable with the amount of support. The monthly training days and material available on the intranet has meant I am able to keep testing myself and reinforce topics.

The company provides students with exceptional training. The staff are so helpful and friendly and go beyond to make sure that training is provided.
