Recognised by Health Education England

A new baby, moving into a new home and a 60-mile round trip didn’t stop Nadeem Alli from acing our pharmacy technician apprenticeship.

The 27-year-old gained distinction after distinction over his two year NVQ Pharmacy Service Skills, Advanced Pharmacy Services and BTEC Level 3 Pharmacy Science Apprenticeship at Trafford College and Preston Hospital.

Nadeem’s outstanding academic achievement was recognised out of 130 pre-registration pharmacy technicians by Health Education England at a glittering awards ceremony at King’s House Conference Centre in Manchester on 24th September.

He also came runner-up of Altrincham and Sale Chamber of Commerce Business Awards at Cresta Court Hotel on October 10th.

Nadeem, who is now working in primary care pharmacy, said: “Certain skills are not obtainable in the workplace. What I have learnt in further education will stay with me for the rest of my career. I am extremely grateful for everyone that has helped me during this journey.”

During his apprenticeship, Nadeem developed skills in chemistry and biology as well as pharmaceutical practice, working extremely well with patients and colleagues.

Apprenticeship Business Development Manager, Michelle Whitehead, said: “Nadeem produced some of the best NVQ evidence I have seen to date. I have adopted some of his methods to help encourage other learners to provide more detailed accounts to support their evidence.

“One particular time where I saw Nadeem at his best was helping others in the workplace, the apprentice was really struggling with the dispensing process, Nadeem calmly sat down with her and helped her through the process.

“It has been an absolute pleasure to be a part of Nadeem’s journey. He has developed into a wonderful technician who has a bright future ahead of him.”
