PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

The purpose of the Further Education and Training Certificate: Pharmacist Assistance is to equip learners to further develop their competencies in the underlying principles of all the major areas related to the pharmaceutical environment. The Further Education and Training Certificate: Pharmacist Assistance forms part of the learning pathway in the pharmacy sector that is linked to the relevant career path. By assisting in the development of competence in this field the Further Education and Training Certificate: Pharmacist Assistance Certificate, in the long term, will assist in addressing the government's call for the training and development of an increased number of pharmaceutical professionals. It aims to provide learners with the technical competence as well as the personal and inter-personal skills required to make them effective members of the pharmaceutical community.

This qualification, similar to the National Certificate Pharmacist Assistance, NQF Level 3, is structured to accommodate training for the various categories of the pharmacy sector identified in the current legislation and thus requires learners, who wish to be registered with the South African Pharmacy Council upon completion of the Qualification, to select a specialisation field from the following:
  • Community Pharmacy.
  • Institutional Pharmacy.
  • Wholesale distribution of Pharmaceutical Goods.
  • Manufacture of Pharmaceutical Goods.

    Qualifying learners, who meet all necessary requirements, will be able to register as a Pharmacist Assistant (Post-Basic) with the South African Pharmacy Council.

    The learner will, at all times, function in accordance with the Scope of Practice of the South African Pharmacy Council relevant to Pharmacist Assistant (Post-Basic).

    Rationale:

    Given the rapid development of science and technology in the modern world, it is extremely challenging to develop suitable training that will remain relevant in an ever-changing environment. The Further Education and Training Certificate: Pharmacist Assistance is aimed at developing the core technical knowledge and personal skills needed by pharmacist assistants that will enable them to perform their functions by applying their skills to new technological and scientific developments. These skills should enable them to adapt to the changing environment and still meet the needs of pharmacy and the changing health-care system. The emphasis of the qualification is on quality and relevance to both the current and the future needs of the country and customers. The main requirement in the market today is for individuals who are well educated and trained in the fundamentals of their field and practiced in applying these skills to real situations and problems. The Further Education and Training Certificate: Pharmacist Assistance aims to produce learners who are able to solve multidisciplinary problems, use technology and apply non-disciplinary skills (for example, communication, teamwork, leadership). This also addresses the key objectives of the national Human Resources Development Strategy.

    The Further Education and Training Certificate: Pharmacist Assistance is designed to meet the needs of learners who have completed the National Certificate: Pharmacist Assistance, Level 3 and who wish to further their competencies in this field. While the subfield at present is listed as Curative Health the qualification also includes Preventative Health, Promotive Health and Development Services, Curative Health and Rehabilitative Health Services.

    The Further Education and Training Certificate: Pharmacist Assistance will not only allow access to the pharmaceutical field, but may also open up opportunities for adult learners who wish to develop their careers in one or more of the related sectors. Through the integration of theoretical understanding and workplace learning, the learner may develop skills, knowledge and understanding that will directly improve performance in the work environment. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    It is assumed that learners are competent in:
  • Communication at NQF Level 3.
  • Mathematical Literacy at NQF Level 3.

    Recognition of Prior Learning:

    This qualification can be achieved in part through the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). Learners are required to complete a practical assessment component for the purpose of registration with the South Africa Pharmacy Council and this precludes the awarding of the complete qualification to learners through RPL assessment. This implies that the qualification may be granted to learners who have:
  • Acquired the skills and knowledge without attending formal courses providing they can demonstrate competence in the outcomes of the individual Unit Standards as required by the Fundamental, Core and Elective areas stipulated in the Qualification and by the Exit Level Outcomes.
  • Completed the experiential learning required by the South African Pharmacy Council.

    Learners submitting themselves for RPL should be thoroughly briefed prior to the assessment, and may be required to submit a Portfolio of Evidence in the prescribed format and/or undergo a workplace assessment to be assessed for formal recognition. While this is primarily a workplace-based Qualification, evidence from other areas of endeavour may be introduced if pertinent to any of the exit level outcomes.

    Access to the Qualification:

    Access to the qualification is open to all learners who comply with the requirements of the current Regulations relating to Pharmacy Education and Training which are published in terms of the current legislation pertaining to Pharmacy. Such learners are expected to:
  • Have completed the National Certificate: Pharmacist Assistance, NQF Level 3.
  • Be in a contractual arrangement for a minimum period of 12 months with an Approved Pharmacy.
  • Be trained by an Approved Tutor approved by the South African Pharmacy Council.
  • Be registered as Pharmacists' Assistant Learners with the South African Pharmacy Council for a minimum period of 12 months.

    Note: Pharmacies offering training for Pharmacists' Assistant Learners must comply with the following:
  • Have current South African Pharmacy Council approval as a training site for the training of Pharmacists' Assistants.
  • Have an Approved Tutor on the premises for the duration of the learning period. 

  • RECOGNISE PREVIOUS LEARNING? 

    QUALIFICATION RULES 
    The Qualification consists of a Fundamental, a Core and an Elective Component.

Combinations of practical, applied, and foundational competencies should be assessed. Assessment should further ensure that all specific outcomes, embedded knowledge and critical cross-field outcomes are evaluated in an integrated way.

    Assessors should assess and give credit for the evidence of learning that has already been acquired through formal, informal and non-formal learning and work experience as the assessment process is capable of being applied to RPL, subject to the rules and criteria of the relevant ETQA. 

    INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    When researching pharmacy training in emerging markets, it became apparent that the Further Education and Training Certificate: Pharmacist Assistance compares favourably with the Certified Pharmacy Technicians Course offered by the Pharmaceutical Society of Singapore. The outcomes of the Certified Pharmacy Technicians Course are:
  • Know and understand pharmaceutical and medical terms, abbreviations and symbols used in prescriptions, dispensing and charting of medications.
  • Have a working knowledge of dosage forms, routes of administration and storage requirements of drugs.
  • Be able to perform work related to processing and filling of prescriptions and record keeping.
  • Be able to perform essential functions relating to drug purchasing and inventory control.
  • Be able to perform the technical functions associated with a hospital drug distribution system.
  • Have a general knowledge of procedures and operations relating to manufacturing.
  • Be able to present and demonstrate merchandise, handle customer enquiries, provide appropriate and correct advise and handle difficult customers and situations.
  • Have basic knowledge in pharmacology and management of common disease.

    The core competencies of the two qualifications are very closely related. However, it needs to be recognised that the Further Education and Training Certificate: Pharmacist Assistance is explicitly placed within the South African context and takes cognisance of the limitations placed on the pharmacist assistant by the relevant legislative and statutory regulations.

    A study of the qualifications offered on the National Qualification Frameworks of New Zealand and Australia showed that this Further Education and Training Certificate is in line with certificates offered through other Qualification Frameworks.

    The following were identified as relating to the Further Education and Training Certificate: Pharmacist Assistance:
  • National Certificate in Pharmacy (Technician) with strands in Hospital and Community (0423): New Zealand.
  • Certificate IV in Community Pharmacy (WRP 40102): Australia.
  • Certificate IV in Health Service Assistance (Hospital and Community Health Pharmacy Technician) (HLT 40502): Australia.

    The components contained in the Further Education and Training Certificate: Pharmacist Assistance also relate to programmes offered by independent training entities. These programmes include:
  • National Training Course for Pharmacy Assistants offered by The Pharmacy Guild of Australia.
  • Pharmacy Assistant Training - offered by Stratford Career Institute.
  • South Carolina Pharmacy Assistant/Technician Programs - offered through the All Allied Health School.
  • Pharmacy Assistant Programs offered by Olympia Career Training Institute.
  • PAT training programme - offered by the Christian Health Association of Kenya in association with Mission of Essential Drugs and Supplies (MEDS).

    The Further Education and Training Certificate: Pharmacist Assistance was compared with the characteristics listed in the International Pharmaceutical Federation's (FIP) Statement on Good Pharmacy Education Practice, which states that, "the pharmacy graduate shall possess knowledge and understanding of the core information associated with the profession of pharmacy". The emphasis of the Further Education and Training Certificate: Pharmacist Assistance on the development of personal and inter-personal skills also recognises the FIP's Statement that, "the pharmacy graduate effectively and creatively manages resources (human, physical, fiscal, time) and information with the goal of assuring access and availability of pharmaceuticals and pharmaceutical care services, thus optimising patient care".

    Conclusion:

    The Further Education and Training Certificate: Pharmacist Assistance compares very favourably with training offered internationally and in particular is aligned with the International Pharmaceutical Federation's (FIP) Statement on Good Pharmacy Education Practice which is accepted world-wide as the training standard for pharmacist assistants. Differences between international practice and the contents of the Further Education and Training Certificate: Pharmacists Assistance relate to SA legislative and statutory limitations on pharmacy practice.
