Module overview

The theoretical component will include decision-making sessions followed by interactive sessions that build into transition to becoming a practising midwife. The role of the midwife as assessor will be explored to support you as a future supervisor of new learners in practice. You will be offered a 1:1 record-keeping audit by a professional midwifery advocate to integrate you into auditing your own clinical practises as a qualified midwife.

You will be required to complete five caseload experiences. This will be organised and conducted within your agreed placement Maternity service provider. This will be introduced mid first year to allow time for planning and risk assessing. There is a risk assessment caseload document that needs completing per caseload. Each caseload will require a user feedback evaluation. This will be something that you will incorporate within a written reflection and add to your portfolio of evidence that will support future first post interviews.
