Training / Certificates

As I recall, when I started at Lloyds Pharmacy, what feels like many moons ago now, I was always eager to learn. Any available training session I would attend, or when specialists in different medicines or treatments attended our stores, I would be first up to learn how it would benefit the clients. Therefore, I have been able to access and learn many different skills, and obtain a varied range of knowledge, which has served me quite well, as I progressed into higher education. A number of these sessions lead to formal qualifications such as National Pharmacy Association Dispensary Assistant Course, LAO Level 2 Certificate in Principles of Business and Administration.

Over the last seven years, I have completed just 600 training courses. The topics have varied, and I have included some examples of qualifications and completion of training I have achieved. Employers did not provide a majority of these, but ones I outreached to, to further my knowledge and understanding of a variety of healthcare, public health, and social topics. Thus, improving my ability as a researcher and educator. Currently, I am in the progress of completing the Edward Jenner Program (NHS Leadership Academy). I have recently been awarded a Fellowship by Academic HE for Higher Education.
