The CPD+ programmes provide learning opportunities for pharmacy professionals to further enhance and demonstrate their professional skills.

The programmes are designed to stretch the skills of the individuals to meet the changing environment and expansive role of pharmacy professionals in delivering services to patients.

A multitude of offerings are available at different levels of practise covering service development and skills development. Many of our CPD+ programmes are accredited Level 4 programmes that require learners to submit a portfolio of evidence for assessment, leading to the awarding of credits. Once enrolled onto these programmes, learners are required to attend all programme dates and submit a portfolio to meet assessment requirements*.
