The role:

Panel members use their expertise to make sure course provision being accredited is fit for purpose, through rigorous application of the GPhC’s education and training standards, making judgements on the basis of evidence.

Panel members will be involved in around six or more days of accreditation events per year, plus preparatory and follow up work. Accreditation and recognition events take place around the UK, panel members must therefore be willing to travel. The posts are remunerated and expenses are paid.

Team leaders (x3)

We encourage applications from pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, academics, or other professionals, with experience of chairing high-profile events.

Team members (x12)

We encourage applications from pharmacists or pharmaceutical scientists working in a university school of pharmacy in Great Britain and Northern Ireland; pharmacists with an education or training role; or lay members with experience in regulation, health, and/or education. To strengthen the Panel further the GPhC also seeks to recruit pharmacists who are active independent prescribers working in an academic or education and training role.

All candidates will demonstrate an unwavering commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.

Through this recruitment drive the GPhC wants to increase the diversity of the Accreditation and Recognition panel. In particular, we seek to recruit panel members from schools of pharmacy not currently represented on the panel and people who work in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

We welcome applications from people with disabilities and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME), as they are currently under-represented on the Panel. This also applies to applicants with a non-pharmacy background.

About the GPhC:

We regulate pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and pharmacies in Great Britain. We work to assure and improve standards of care for people using pharmacy services.

One of our principal functions is to quality assure pharmacy education and training provision in the UK.

The GPhC is a respected regulatory body, acknowledged by the Professional Standards Authority for meeting all the Standards of Good Regulation.
