Pre-Registration Advisory Group

The pre-registration advisory group  provides leadership in pre-registration practice and this will be achieved by constituting an empowered and representative network of leaders. It is a voluntary group and network of pre-registration tutors and trainees with experience of GPhC pre-registration training in various sectors across GB.

This group will contribute to the RPS pre-registration project and provide constructive and reasoned feedback to steer the development and evolution of RPS pre-registration support, resources and tools.

More specifically, the group will:

  • provide advice and consultation to the RPS and inform standards, guidance and professional policy on emergent issues and consultations relevant to in pre-registration practice;
  • provide a range of perspectives and facilitate stakeholder engagement across pharmacy sectors;
  • provide perspectives to help the National Boards influence external stakeholders (in and outside the profession) on development of pre-registration practice; and
  • engage with the National Boards, other RPS expert groups and panels to share expertise in order to support improvements in the pre-reg experience and outcomes.
