Module one is a journey of self-discovery which will help you to understand yourself better and how others may perceive you and vice-versa. All within the context of work.
We also begin to explore longer-term thinking around career management skills - what you need to know to enable you to start this journey. As a result you will be better able to consider your personal work and career interests and the value that they can add to a potential employer.
Module two builds
You will learn the benefits of professional networking as a practice to identify and remove potential barriers to career and job prospect opportunities. Cultural awareness aims to prepare employees to be global citizens.
Module three builds on self-awareness and understanding of strengths, limitations, ambitions and employer needs.
This will develop your communication skills, help you to identify barriers to effective communication and prepare you to confidently articulate the benefits that you bring to a potential employer both in writing and face-to-face. This relies on you being able to create your personal brand image and demonstrating this through your words, behaviours and actions.
Module four helps you to develop your understanding of interview skills and techniques as well as prepare you to articulate the benefits that your skills set brings to a potential employer.
This module will help you stand out before, during and after the job selection process.
Module five consolidates learning from the programme and helps you to create a career plan which serves as a route map to ensure that you achieve your short, medium and longer-term career goals and ambitions.
"I found the programme thoroughly enjoyable and interesting. It allowed me to think deeper about how I perform as an individual in the working life alongside learning about the different working behaviours and characteristics other people develop. I strongly encourage the programme for pharmacists who wish to maximise their profession and are able to utilise their skills to create an all round structured working environment. Being a pharmacist isn’t just about the clinical knowledge. It is important to learn about the business side and know how to build your professional portfolio in a distinctive way that will help you stand out amongst the competition. This is exactly what the programme has taught me and I am now a successful community pharmacist with sufficient skills that will allow me to take senior positions in the near future”.
Community Pharmacist, Hub Pharmacy, United Kingdom
Over the past few months, I have enjoyed working with and learning from Karen Glen under the Pharmacist for the Future Programme by Curriculo Solutions.
It has been an exciting journey of self-discovery and growth, as we delved into the science of teamwork, cultural awareness, brand matrix, interview skills, leadership, and career planning. The course shrank down many complex concepts into simple bits that were relatable and absolutely valuable to me. I'd recommend this programme to any young pharmacists interested in building their skills and having a smoother transition from undergraduate studies to the work environment.

“Myself and the team have found the course incredibly useful in terms of both individual development and also to build an effective team culture, breaking down some of the barriers of job roles and qualifications and developing the teams understanding of individual personality types. This understanding has then allowed us to consider adapting our behaviours to ensure we function as a successful team. The consultation skills learnt in the programme are aiding our teams to communicate more effectively with both colleagues and patients. Some of our pre-reg pharmacist students who undertook the course found the STAR technique particularly useful and timely, when applying for their band 6 positions, and have all been offered jobs (which I am sure comes down to their high-level performance at interviews thanks to the course)."
