Mentoring opportunity for Pharmacy Technicians

The Pharmacy London Team at NHS England Workforce, Training, and Education (WT&E) is initiating a project to evaluate the benefits of mentoring within the pharmacy technician profession.  

   

We are seeking pharmacy technicians from all sectors to participate in the pilot as either mentees or mentors. To ensure a diverse range of mentors with the necessary expertise across various specialties and topics, we are also inviting pharmacists willing to act as mentors.  

   

During the pilot, each mentor will be matched with a mentee based on their area of expertise, prior experience, and the specific reasons for seeking mentoring.  

   

Anticipated time commitments for participants include:  

·       09 July 2024 (3pm - 4pm): Attendance at an initial group session (1 hour) with all participants (either in person or virtually).  

·       Three independent mentoring sessions to be conducted between 10 July and 18 October 2024. Dates to be agreed between mentor and mentee.  

·       22 October 2024 (pm): Participation in an evaluation focus group for all participants (1 hour), along with the completion of an end-of-pilot questionnaire.  

·       Participants should ensure you can attend the dates above before submitting an interest to participate in the pilot.  

  

Link to expression of interest form (for both mentee or mentors). The closing date to submit an expression of interest is Monday 3rd June 2024 and places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
