What to do when your preregistration trainee is unhappy with their training


The best teachers are those that do it by heart. Most Pharmacy "tutors" are frustrated with their own employment conditions at work. Pre regs are just forced on them through their companies claiming money per head. The problem is most tutors are not tutors by choice. "In Dele’s case, his employer and tutor explain that they are sympathetic to his situation, but the approval of study time and annual leave is at the discretion of the tutor and is subject to company policy, which Dele agreed to when he accepted the position."--this sums it up right there, a pre reg is just another employee on company terms that's it. I have been saying it for a long time, The current pre reg training model is unfit for purpose. Pre registration should be an integrated 5th year or even 6th year similar to a junior doctors F1 F2. Douglas Hancox : A pre reg SHOULD NOT be an Employee!!!
