Skills 4 Pharmacy is a Lancashire-based provider of initial education, training, and functional skills for pharmacy apprentices nationwide.

Established in 2015, Skills 4 Pharmacy has fast built an enviable reputation in the provision of flexible, high-quality training programmes for pharmacy technicians and support worker apprenticeships from their Preston headquarters, providing training to NHS Trusts and community pharmacies across the UK. 

Skills 4 Pharmacy has recently partnered with the National Pharmacy Association (NPA) and will be providing NPA members in England with apprenticeship training to Level 2 and Level 3 pharmacy apprenticeships. 

The partnership means community pharmacies can now get new support from a leading apprenticeship provider to upskill members of their team and recruit new staff – helping to meet patient demand during the busy winter period and beyond. 

Skills 4 Pharmacy is an experienced pharmacy apprenticeship training provider dedicated to initiating and developing the careers of pharmacy support staff and technicians, managing the recruitment of apprentices, as well as their enrolment and training. 

The apprenticeship package offers a Level 2 Apprenticeship – Pharmacy Support Worker and a Level 3 Apprenticeship – Pharmacy Technician. 

Amerjit Singh, managing director at Skills 4 Pharmacy said: “As a member of the NPA for the last 23 years, it is a great honour to be able to work alongside them to promote apprenticeships. 

“Pharmacies are facing challenging times, however I firmly believe that apprenticeship programmes which upskill and empower the workforce are essential for future business survival. Apprenticeships are a great way to build a strong talent pipeline and bring new skills to pharmacies. 

“The role of technicians in particular will help pharmacies to concentrate on new services and provide new funding streams.” 

Louise Baglole, director of professional services and development at the NPA said: “We are very pleased to be working with Skills 4 Pharmacy to deliver pharmacy apprenticeships to our members.

“Offering an apprenticeship programme can help NPA members to recruit and strengthen their pharmacy team, while also boosting productivity. 

“Demand for Level 3 apprenticeships has been building amongst our members and we are delighted now to be in a position to meet it. With this new partnership, we will be able to provide Level 2 and Level 3 pharmacy apprenticeships, so I look forward to working closely with Amerjit and the team.”
