About Buttercups Training
Since its inception in 1988 Buttercups Training has become a successful, well-established training provider with a wealth of experience and expertise.
Buttercups Training delivers high quality training programmes to pharmacists, dispensing technicians, dispensing assistants and support staff working in hospitals, the community, dispensing doctors' practices and in the Armed Forces.
Buttercups Training has grown into a highly reputable company which, for many years, has secured contracts to provide training for a number of the large multiples, hospitals and independent pharmacies as well as for individuals who fund their own studies.
As a direct benefit of having a deliberate policy of recruiting experienced, well-qualified personnel, Buttercups Training is staffed by a committed and enthusiastic team of 45 staff including pharmacists and technicians drawn from hospitals and community pharmacies.
Buttercups Training is a Centre for Edexcel and has been commended by employers, students and accrediting bodies for Pharmacy Services NVQ Level 2 and Pharmacy Services NVQ Level 3 courses for dispensing assistants and pharmacy technicians, resources and assessment. Once students are qualified, Buttercups Training support continues by providing professional development modules for pharmacy technicians, dispensing assistants and medicine counter assistants through membership of its Academy.
Buttercups Training provides a flexible approach to training, principally through correspondence courses. As part of our commitment to giving our students the highest quality of education, all of the following benefits are offered to our learners:
- Password protected website offers online support.
- Helpline 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
- Course editors are available to talk through any course issues with candidates and employers.
- Our teaching team is on hand to offer students additional support when required.

- Tutorial sessions are delivered via telephone.
- Personal one-to-one tuition is available.
- Buttercups Training actively seeks government funding for payment of fees and is flexible according to the delivery model required.
Our students' progress is individually monitored and supported for the duration of the course and even beyond completion when our information, advice and guidance service remains available through our Academy. We believe that our ability to communicate directly with our learners is one of the keys to a successful learning experience.

It is our policy to telephone students on most courses when target dates are not met. We understand the pressures within pharmacies and therefore are as flexible as possible. We recognise the need for pharmacists to be involved and evaluate the progress made by their candidates in order to provide monthly reports to pharmacy chains on candidates' progress, so that praise or encouragement can be given.
