Course Design

The course is divided into five study units, which cover both the theoretical and practical components, namely:

 

We provide an interactive distance learning model with one-day practical workshop and online learning to support completion of the assignments and Portfolio of Evidence within 12 weeks – R 4000.00 (incl. VAT) 

 This option provides for self-study at the learner’s own pace guided by the study material (text book) and facilitator support. 

 A one-day workshop, on Practical Dispensing, is presented.

 It is compulsory that all learners attend this workshop (see the year program below for dates). 

 Learners should have an SAMF, preferably the latest Edition, when they attend the workshop. 

 Workshop attendance before attempting the assignment is strongly recommended. 

 Completion of the assignment is supporting through online learning and must be completed within 12 weeks.

 

Assessment

All learners are assessed in three ways namely: 

a) Formative assessment: At the end of the learner’s study letter is a multiple choice formative assessment with questions on each of the 5 study units. The learner has to complete it and fax it to the Academy. Competence must be proved before the summative assessment may be written. 

b) Assignment on dispensing in practice: Each learner receives a document explaining what is required for the assignment as well as what needs to be completed. Competence must be proved before the summative assessment may be written. All learners will be enrolled on an online learning platform to facilitate completion and submission of the Portfolio of Evidence (POE). The POE must be completed within 12 weeks.

c) Summative Assessment: This is the final assessment and in the form of case studies. Learners may use their text books as reference as the summative assessment tests application of the material. Summative assessments are written in the presence of an invigilator as per arrangement with the S Buys Academy. A learner will be allowed 5 hours to complete the summative assessment. Competence must be reached in each question as the questions test specific outcomes for which competence is required.

Additional fees: 

 The following additional fees are payable upon re-assessment: 

Re-assessment of formative assessment: Free of charge. 

Re-assessment of assignment: For corrections or resubmission the fee for re-assessment is R300 (Incl. VAT) 

Re-assessment of summative: The fee for re-assessment is R300 (incl. VAT) 

 Re-admission: A learner may progress at his/her own speed and will be allowed a maximum period of 12 months to complete the course. After 12 months, all files will be archived. If the course was not completed, the learner will have to apply for an extended contract period of 4 months (contact the S Buys Academy for the necessary forms).
