Basic IT Skills Training: eLearning Available to Pharmacy Staff

The IT Skills Pathway was developed to provide an officially recognised route of IT skills learning and certification for the NHS workforce. It has been confirmed that e-learning via the IT Skills Pathway Tracking System will continue to be available free of charge to the NHS, including pharmacy contractors, however, Microsoft exams, practice tests and printable learning material will no longer be centrally funded after 1st July 2013. In some areas, exams may continue to be offered through local NHS funding arrangements.

A communication has gone directly to registered learners to alert them to this change; learners may want to consider arranging any outstanding Microsoft exams before the 1st July 2013 when the central funding for exams is withdrawn.

More information about the NHS IT Skills Pathway can be found in the Pharmacy IT section of this website.
