Pharmacy Technician Workforce Expansion Project

Building on two successful national pilots designed to grow the pharmacy technician workforce, we are pleased to announce a new funding opportunity to train and develop pre-registration trainee pharmacy technicians (PTPTs) in 2021/22.

The Pharmacy Technician Workforce Expansion Project 2021/22 will help employers develop PTPTs across England, either as part of a cross-sector programme or by providing a single-sector training placement in community pharmacy.

Eligibility criteria apply, and cross-sector partnerships must include a minimum of two healthcare settings, one of which must be either a community or hospital pharmacy. We welcome partnerships that include general practice/primary care networks, to continue workforce growth in this sector.

Application is via an expression of interest submitted via an online application form. The application process is open from 23 August to 26 September 2021.
