Help shape pharmacy tests for pre-registration pharmacists 


Health Education England (HEE) is looking for employers to help develop numeracy questions for the pre-registration pharmacy recruitment process.

Prospective pre-registration pharmacists must sit a number of tests when applying for posts, including a numeracy test. HEE is keen to speak to employers with experience of working with pre-registration pharmacists and will be holding a workshop in London on Friday 5 July.

If you would like to attend, please contact, and include your job role, employer and pharmacy sector (eg acute, community, mental health).

Process reminder for Tier 2 certificates of sponsorship for pre-registration pharmacists 

When applying Tier 2 certificates of sponsorship to skilled pre-registration pharmacists coming to the UK from outside of the European Economic Area (EEA), please remember that:

  • these training posts are not subject to the resident labour test (see page 119 of the Tier 2-5 sponsorship guidance) and all associated sponsorship fees should be met by the employer and not by the individuals themselves.
  • organisations should not decrease the advertised salary once the offers process is complete, as this can have a significant impact on Tier 2 candidates fulfilling the sponsorship requirements.
  • you can find further information about the Tier 2 recruitment process in our immigration section.
  • a Resident Labour Market Test (RLMT) will need to be conducted, unless the candidate falls into one of the exemption categories outlined on our RLMT page.
