Quality Assurance

Quality Assurance Processes

The obligation of employers to participate in the PRPS quality assurance processes is detailed in the Educational Agreement between NES Pharmacy and the approved training provider. The employers are required to sign the educational agreement to receive the funding.

The quality assurance process centres on the approval of the training bases and the approval of the tutors.

All training sites require to be registered with the Regulator for pre-registration training, and the approval criteria to be applied for the PRPS are based on the Regulator criteria for approval of premises. NES Pharmacy has created and maintains an Approved List of training sites that can take part in the PRPS, and only those pharmacies on this approved list can host a PRPS trainee. The approval criteria will ensure that the necessary facilities and support are in place to provide the trainees with the level of training required.
