Pharmacy Recruitment - Foundation Training (formerly PRPS)

We manage the educational infrastructure for Pre-Registration Pharmacy trainees in Scotland through the Pre-Registration Pharmacist Scheme (PRPS).

The main components of the PRPS include; a centralised recruitment process, a standardised training programme and quality assurance of the national programme.

PRPS recruitment

We coordinate a centralised recruitment process whereby the selection of suitable recruits into the PRPS is by means of a standardised, quality assured process. The 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.
