A midwife makes a vital and unique contribution to the wellbeing of women and families during one of life’s most important events. This popular and dynamic pre-registration midwifery course leads to an academic award and a qualification as a Registered Midwife. The course consists of approximately 50% theory and 50% clinical practice. The course is designed to stimulate your curiosity. Emphasis is also placed on motivating you to become a competent professional practitioner. You will develop a keen awareness of the need for continuing education and development throughout your professional career. A key part of the course is the clinical experience acquired in a range of hospital and community settings. You will have placements in a range of busy obstetric units where you will gain midwifery experience caring for women and families who require specialist input from maternity care teams. You will also have the opportunity to participate in midwifery care in more remote and rural settings. You will be continuously supported and assessed by midwives during your practice placements. These experienced mentors will develop your skills in the delivery of midwifery care.
