The Senior Dispenser Programme (No Pharmacist) allows the learner to be able to deal with routine queries and enables the senior dispenser to be involved in professional discussions with the healthcare team regarding more complex issues. Learners and employers benefit together, with additional course components and incentives.
The programme consists of the Level 3 Technical Certificate in Pharmaceutical Science (No Pharmacist) and the Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Pharmacy Service Skills (No Pharmacist).
This programme is designed to be completed without pharmacist supervision and the learner could not register as a pharmacy technician without amassing 14 hours/week supervision, under a registered pharmacist or pharmacy technician, for the 2 year duration of the course. Please contact us using the 'ask a question' form for further information regarding registering as a pharmacy technician. The required Expert Witness observations for the Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Pharmacy Service Skills (No Pharmacist) will be covered through one or more visits by a Buttercups assessor. We cannot accept applications from self-funded learners; the employer is required to support and fund this programme.
