Pharmacy Technician Level 3

This is an Erratum notice for the Assessment Guidance on Unit 14 Medicinal and Non-medicinal Treatments for Malignant Diseases and Musculoskeletal Conditions Learning Outcome 1 and 2 on page 177

The Assessment guidance for LO1 and LO 2, which currently states:

An example of a suitable assignment to cover these learning outcomes could be a short online test, devised by the centre, with a suggested pass mark of 80 per cent

will be amended and the test removed as an accepted assessment method as this does not fully meet the assessment criteria.
