Pharmacy technician work

Title
Pharmacy technicians work under the supervision of a pharmacist preparing and dispensing drugs and medicines. This involves calculating amounts of ingredients required, weighing out chemicals and measuring liquids in order to make up prescriptions.

Technicians usually have an NVQ Level 3 in Pharmacy Services. They must be working in a pharmacy with past experience of helping in the dispensary to be able to take this course of study; people who have studied science to GCSE level may have an advantage.

Technicians may also be able to gain the BTEC National Certificate in Science (Pharmaceuticals) which requires four GCSEs for entry.
