Preparation of Supervision of Midwives

It is designed to prepare midwives for the role of supervisors of midwives as well as further enhancing their knowledge and understanding of contemporary issues required for safeguarding the health and wellbeing of women and their babies and families through promoting best practice and excellence in care, preventing poor practice and intervening in unacceptable practice.

Entry requirements

Candidates will be registered on the midwifery part of the professional register maintained by the NMC; and normally candidates would possess an Honours degree in midwifery or a relevant health discipline; normally a 2.1 classification from a recognised higher education institution; or midwives will be expected to provide evidence that they are capable of working at Master's level by producing a portfolio of evidence or having studied and achieved credits on a recognised module of study; or consideration will be given to midwives who do not have the necessary entry requirements; some modules require students to be based in clinical practice; students wishing to undertake these modules will require access to an appropriate clinical placement.

Assessment methods

Assessment is by course work and written exams which take place at the end of the semester in which the module is taught. Results obtained in the second and final years contribute to the final degree classification.
