About the Pharmacy ‘A Day in the Life' programme

This programme aims to support the gap in work experience opportunities and provide national online work-related learning content.  It is an interactive and immersive VR360 app designed to act as an alternative to work experience for young people (16-18).

The app will be accessible for download (VR headset, mobile phone and tablet) and through a browser for web-based learning.

The learning objectives in these online work-related learning modules will allow learners to gain new insights into what it is like to work in Pharmacy; gain an understanding of the wide variety of roles within Pharmacy, feel better able to make an informed choice about a career in Pharmacy and to increase understanding of the qualifications, skills and attributes required to work in Pharmacy.

There are three pharmacy settings available:

  • Community Pharmacy
  • Hospital Pharmacy
  • GP Pharmacy

Each setting introduces healthcare professionals sharing their experience of working within the pharmacy profession and the career path they chose. It also shows them at their work with patient / practitioner scenarios.
