How does the Faculty “fit”?
How this fits with CPD
CPD is a mandatory requirement in I.
order to retain registration as a
Pharmacy professional with the GPhC.
CPD is one aspect of
professional development
and it is useful to consider
CPD alongside the other
activities undertake and
Any training, learning or development
record
as
part
of
activities that you undertake when

qualifications as evidence
your CPD
for portfolio. It all counts.
III. Review of CPD alongside

record as part of your portfolio of
Evidence when submitting an
application for Faculty membership.

How this fits with Continuing Fitness
to Practice
RPS Faculty will support pharmacists through the GPhC’s Continuing
Fitness to Practice (CFTP) requirements
The CFTP framework is made up of three components: CPD review,
peer review and external performance indicators
The RPS Faculty have been in close discussions with GPhC around
these plans and have ensured that all methods of Faculty assessment
(peer review and external performance indicators in the form of the
Advanced Practice Framework) would be a clear quality marker for
revalidation of Members

Shifting the workforce as a whole…
Workforce capability distribution

How this fits with employers
What we can’t guarantee
What we will seek to do
I.
I.
II.
III.
That employers will automatically link
promotion to Faculty stages
That recruitment to an advanced role
requires Faculty membership as an
essential
The commissioners are required to
pay for services from RPS Faculty
members
II.
III.
IV.
All of these are ambitions but will
require evidence of quality and
outcomes. Longer term aspirations
of the RPS
V.
The employers align their career
progression with Faculty progression
That Faculty membership is desirable
for advanced roles
That Faculty membership (and
progression) is recognised as a
harmonisation of knowledge and skills
and experience and behaviours across
GB and across new commissioning
geographies
We have examples where Chiefs have
made RPS membership mandatory
and Faculty membership desirable
We have examples of career
structures in some of the multiples
aligning with Faculty model
21
