The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) will join students and training providers to debate whether the education system needs an overhaul at a C+D webinar tomorrow (December 8).
GPhC head of education Damian Day will be speaking at the webinar – broadcast live on the C+D homepage at 4pm – alongside Noma Al-Ahmad, managing director of training provider ProPharmace.
They will be joined by Jay Modhvadia, co-director of student support organisation Team Pre-Reg, and Zohib Sheikh, a pre-registration student who recently graduated from the University of Hertfordshire.
For the first time, readers will be able to listen to the discussion live on the C+D homepage without the need to register for the debate. They will also be able to listen back to the full event over the coming weeks.
During the webinar, the delegates will discuss the results of a series of reader polls on support for pre-registration students, the need for a cap on student numbers, and England chief pharmaceutical officer Keith Ridge’s prediction that some students may have to pay for a pre-registration placement in future.
C+D will be gathering readers’ views in advance; if you want to share your thoughts or have a question you would like us to put to the panel, please email [email protected] with the subject line ‘Webinar’.
