Once you've entered evidence in your portfolio for each of the Advanced Pharmacy Framework competencies, you're ready to be assessed.
We reccommend having about 20 - 25 entries in your portfolio before submitting for assessment.
There are three to four components to the assessment process:
- A practice-based portfolio, using the Advanced Practice Portfolio (APP).
- Peer assessment or review using the online Peer Assessment Tool.
- An up-to-date CV.
- Practice assessment *
An oral assessment demonstrating the depth of your knowledge and skills.
* The requirements are different for those who have been practising for over 10 years to those who are re-submitting or have been on the register between 2 - 10 years.

Our assessors will review your experience and, if successful, award you at one of three stages of advanced practice, in recognition of your achievement. You'll receive a certificate of your achievement and be able to start using the relevant postnominals.
You’ll also receive a personal Faculty Assessment Report with valuable feedback from peers to help you make the most of your potential and find out where to take your professional development next.
