|Introduction To Pharmacy Technicians & Assistants Apprenticeships|
A few years ago, there was a culture in the United Kingdom whereby it was considered that the only route to getting a fulfilling career was to go to university first to study full time and then look for graduate jobs. Now, thankfully, Apprenticeship programmes have changed all that and you wouldn’t believe the range of Apprenticeships out there for young people now. These days, you can even do specialised Pharmaceutical Apprenticeships!

If you think Pharmacy apprenticeships are for you, then take a look at what’s available and you could soon be doing pharmacy jobs; earning while you learn valuable skills...

So, for Pharmacy Apprenticeships, London training centres and pharmacies might have a completely different set up to those in Manchester or Birmingham, for example.
