Re­becca finds for­mula for suc­cess

Rochdale Observer - - CHILD SEX ABUSE INQUIRY -

SCI­ENCE stu­dents have walked away vic­to­ri­ous from this year’s North West Pre-Registration Trainee Phar­macy Tech­ni­cian of the Year Awards.

The 10th an­nual awards took place at the pres­ti­gious Mu­seum of Sci­ence & In­dus­try in Manch­ester (MOSI).

Sup­ported by Health Ed­u­ca­tion Eng­land’s north west team, the event cel­e­brated the suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of train­ing and registration of the re­gion’s newly qual­i­fied phar­macy tech­ni­cians.

Stu­dent Ian John­son, 30, from Manch­ester, was named Best Aca­demic Achiever, while Re­becca Viney, 24, from Rochdale, won the award for Out­stand­ing Con­tri­bu­tion to Phar­macy Ser­vices in the Work­place. Re­becca, who was de­scribed by her tu­tor as a con­sci­en­tious and com­mit­ted stu­dent, com­pleted a very de­mand­ing qual­i­fi­ca­tion while em­ployed in two jobs – demon­strat­ing the amount of ded­i­ca­tion and de­sire she had to com­plete her stud­ies.

While un­der­tak­ing her course Re­becca com­pleted a project on free of charge medicines, in which she looked at sup­ply is­sues and gen­eral is­sues within the sys­tem.

From the au­dit she car­ried out she was able to sug­gest and im­ple­ment changes to en­able the process to be­come more stream­lined and ef­fi­cient.

Ian would spend his morn­ings in the col­lege li­brary un­der­tak­ing re­search be­fore the day started, as well as spend­ing his evenings there too. The col­lege’s ex­ter­nal ver­i­fi­ca­tion pro­cesses high­lighted the ex­tent of Ian’s knowl­edge and un­der­stand­ing, and the word “out­stand­ing” was used on the re­port he sub­mit­ted.

An­other of the as­sign­ments he com­pleted was de­scribed as “one of the best sub­mis­sions of as­sign­ment work on col­lege record” by one of his tu­tors. He achieved dis­tinc­tions across all mod­ules.
