Here is what our trainees think...
‘The workbook was easy to follow and well laid out. It was really helpful as I have never worked in a pharmacy before and it explained the basics really well which helped me to settle into my role within the pharmacy easily.’
Completer of Introduction to pharmacy, Matt, Manchester
‘I spoke to Scientia Skills as I was trying to get a placement within a pharmacy as a Counter Assistant. They recommended the training to me to prepare me for the interview so I had some basic knowledge of pharmacy and could show that I was serious about working in a pharmacy. It was very interesting and I used the knowledge in my interview and I got the job! Thank you so much Scientia Skills for your support and it was free!’
