Jennifer Corbett recently completed the Pharmacy Support Worker Level 2 apprenticeship with Skills4Pharmacy, and was first to achieve this certification in her class, which is no mean feat as the standard was incredibly high across the board.

Jennifer’s willingness to go above and beyond her required duties was always going to mark her as a stand out student; she consistently gave excellent and incredibly detailed off-the-job entries as well as submitting detailed pieces of work and has proven extremely diligent even generating evidence in her work when it had not been asked for. Jennifer has an inquisitive and intuitive approach to her learning and always asked questions to ensure her understanding was correct throughout the learning process.

As part of the training process, Jennifer benefitted from multiple 1:1 sessions with her tutor, Matt. Skills4Pharmacy find this level of focus better helps learners progress through the course,  and it facilitates the use of extra resources such as class recording and workbooks, allowing students to continue to develop their knowledge even if a session is missed. Weekly contact with assessors and tutors has been a huge part of Jennifer’s success, giving her the support and confidence needed to obtain such outstanding results.

Jennifer’s manager at Cohens Chemist has been delighted with her progress commenting, “Jennifer has really applied herself to the course and is a valued, well-rounded member of our pharmacy team. We’re very happy she’s decided to stay with us and use her newly acquired skills!”

Suzanne Johns, Head of HR at Cohens Chemist, also sent her congratulations on a fantastic achievement by Jennifer, and went on to comment, “Cohens Chemist has always been an advocate of apprenticeships both in our branch network and our head office site.  Our ongoing relationship with Skills4Pharmacy and the training programmes they provide supports the commitment we have to ensure we have qualified and knowledgeable staff.  An apprenticeship is a fantastic way to provide the right training and allow candidates to gain that vital work experience that is needed to secure their future employment, which has a positive impact on employers, individuals and the economy”.

Skills4Pharmacy Managing Director, Amerjit Singh added, “Jennifer is a credit Cohens Chemist and should be very proud of her achievements. She remained  motivated throughout the course, and I am told she was a pleasure to tutor, keen and willing to fully engage with the learning process. Well done Jennifer”.
