Pharmacy Technician Workforce Expansion Project

Building on three 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 2022/23.

The Pharmacy Technician Workforce Expansion Project 2022/23 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. 

Application is via an expression of interest submitted via an online application form

The application process is open from 27 June to 17 July 2022.
