Module overview

Theoretical component:

The theoretical component will include synchronous and asynchronous learning activities associated with decision-making, quality assurance, personal leadership, coaching of others, continuity of carer, maternity services provision and midwifery professionalism. The role of the midwife as student supervisor will be explored to support you in your role supporting learning in practice. You will be given the opportunity to ‘strengthen your capabilities’ (NMC, 2019) to realise your own potential to support your transition to first post as a newly qualified midwife.

Practice linked component:

You will be required to complete a minimum of five continuity of carer caseload experiences. This will be introduced early within the programme to allow time for the required planning and risk assessment. There is a risk assessment caseload document that needs completing per caseload. Each caseload will require a user feedback evaluation which you will then incorporate within a written reflection as well as add to your portfolio of evidence that will support future first post interviews. Appropriate activities can be recorded within your Midwifery ongoing Record of Achievement (MORA) portfolio of evidence.
