Midwives provide skilled, knowledgeable, and compassionate care to women, newborn infants and their families. They work across the continuum of pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, labour, birth, postpartum and the early weeks of a newborn infant’s life. To meet these needs our programme reflects a dynamic, student-centred approach to learning, teaching and assessment.
Our postgraduate diploma in midwifery is subject to the ‘NMC Standards for pre-registration midwifery programmes’. This requires that 50% of programme learning is theoretical and 50% is practical.
It aims to prepare you for practice as an accountable and autonomous midwife with a focus on:
- Mastery of the knowledge and skills required to provide safe and effective midwifery care to women and their families.
- The interpersonal and cultural competence required for effective and collaborative working.
- Developing self-capability in a midwifery leadership context, particularly in relation to quality, safety, and efficacy.
- Demonstrating commitment to ongoing research, audit and service evaluation to enhance professional learning, policy and practice.
