Content

In your theoretical study of midwifery, we will teach you using a blended learning approach, which includes lectures, tutorials, online self-directed learning and workshops. You will prepare for your placements in our simulated clinical environment prior to your practice placements across South-East Scotland. Notable midwifery skills include:
communication skills; breast feeding; normal labour and birth; initial consultation and history taking; medicines management.

On placement you will relate theory to real life practice supported by a placement supervisor/assessor specifically trained to support you and assess your achievement.

The experience you gain will enable you to become a conscientious midwife and contribute positively to midwifery practice. You’ll become knowledgeable and skilled in the care of pregnant women, their babies and families and graduate ready to go straight into work.
