Here is what our trainees think...
‘There are so many people to help me! I have my tutor in the pharmacy who I see every day. Then there is my assessor, who is in touch to talk about my work or the next deadline. And then there are the Scientia team at the office, full of good ideas and have a quick check-in with Trudi once a month just to see if I am ok!’
Trainee, Leah, Aberdeen
‘I love the fact that I got a tablet to do my work on. It means I can carry my work where ever I go. The online system means it is all there, all the time. And I can read a bit of a workbook in my lunch hour or on the bus without having to lug any books around.’
Trainee, Fathima, London
‘Having seen course work from another provider before, I was pleased to see the Scientia Skills workbooks are well written and engaging. The videos have helped us both to understand how things work and my trainee is loving the training and keeping me on my toes with questions!’
Pharmacist and tutor, Heather, London
