PRPS Recruitment

Welcome to the Pre-Registration Pharmacist Scheme 2020-21

NHS Education for Scotland (NES) coordinates a centralised recruitment process whereby the selection of suitable recruits into the PRPS is by means of a standardised, quality assured process. Following this, placement of successful PRPS trainees is carried out considering both the preferences of the trainee and the training provider.

The pre-registration training placement gives trainees the opportunity to develop knowledge, skills and experience in real-life situations under the guidance and supervision of a GPhC approved tutor.

The below information can be found for Trainee Applicants and Training Providers & Tutors on the relevant tabs:

  • Key dates for the recruitment year
  • Guidance documents for each stage of the process
  • Flowchart of the PRPS recruitment process
  • Details about the NES Co-ordinated Modular Programme and NES Co-ordinated Remote & Rural Programme
  • Post recruitment information

In order to provide useful information for all parties throughout the recruitment year, we will update these pages regularly.
