All our trainees are very well supported both within their placement hospitals and via the East of England training programme.
All our hospitals have dedicated experienced pre-reg managers who lead the pre-registration training programme within their trust and support all pre-registration tutors.
As a trainee you will have your designated pre-reg tutor who will provide you with guidance and support on all aspects of your rotational training and external placements. They will also guide you through the collection of evidences and building up of your e-portfolio which they assess on a regular basis.
Additional support is provided through scheduled visits by a placement supervisor who has the dual role of monitoring the quality of pre-reg training provided within a cluster of hospitals and also providing external advice and support to both trainees and tutors.

UEA residential study programme and Virtual Learning Environment
Your workplace learning is complemented and supported by the UEA study programme. This consists of a series of residential study blocks where you are taught by a range of experts on a wide variety of topics relevant to the GPhC assessment framework. The sessions are designed to be highly interactive and follow innovative learning approaches that cater for all learning styles.
As a trainee you will have access to a Virtual Learning Environment on UEA Blackboard dedicated to pre-reg pharmacist training. This is used as a portal for all communications, learning resources from all study sessions and GPhC style assessments provided at residentials.
The programme delivery team is committed to ensuring that all trainees are well prepared for the GPhC registration assessment so we provide opportunities for you to complete formal full-length mock assessments towards the end of thetraining year.
Networking with Pre-reg Managers/Tutors
We facilitate regular meetings with the East of England Pre-reg Managers Group to share best practice and ideas for improvement of the overall training experiences of all trainees in the East of England.
