The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) is the independent regulator for pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and pharmacy premises in Great Britain. It is our job to protect, promote and maintain the health, safety and well being of members of the public by upholding standards and public trust in pharmacy.

Each year we hold two national registration assessments for pre-registration trainee pharmacists. Each assessment comprises of two papers. Part 1 is a 40-item calculation paper and part 2 is a 120-item multiple choice paper.

More information on the registration assessment can be found on our website.

The GPhC has a panel of standard setters who review questions for the Registration Assessment and ultimately set the raw pass mark for each assessment paper using a modified Angoff process. We are looking to recruit a number of new members for this panel. 

Standard setting panel members need to be pharmacists currently working in a role with a patient-facing element alongside recently registered pharmacists and/or pre-registration trainee pharmacists. They must be familiar with the standards for pre-registration pharmacist training and the knowledge and skills expected of recently registered pharmacists, and have experience of joint-decision making.  Knowledge of standard setting methodologies, and experience of standard setting and using multiple choice questions in assessment, is desirable but not essential. 

We are proud of being an employer that values the diversity of its workforce and we encourage applicants from all backgrounds and sections of the community to apply.
