Subject

Midwifery

**Summary**: The midwifery degree at Teesside University provides you with the knowledge and skills to develop an exciting and rewarding career. Midwives work in partnership with women providing support, advice and care, enabling them to make informed choices during pregnancy, birth and early motherhood.

**Course details**: The midwife’s role encompasses health promotion and health education for women and their families within a multicultural society to enhance their own and their family’s health. Midwifery requires competent, accountable and problem-solving practitioners, with good communication skills to meet the high expectations and demands of women and their families and also that of current practice. As with all healthcare professionals the public place a high level of expectation and trust in their midwife and therefore to work in this sector it is essential that you are able to demonstrate the core values embedded within the NHS Constitution. These are as follows: working together for patients, respect and dignity, commitment to quality of care, compassion, improving lives and everyone counts.

This programme prepares you to meet the requirements of the Nursing and Midwifery Council's standards for pre-registration midwifery education (NMC, 2009). Throughout the programme, as part of the placement experience, you will be required to travel to your placement area and work a shift pattern rota which includes night duty, weekends and bank holidays.

**After the course**: On successful completion of the programme you will gain eligibility to apply for registration as a midwife on the Nursing and Midwifery Council Professional Register. The knowledge and experience gained will provide you with the opportunity to have an exciting and rewarding career. Registered Midwife Status is recognised internationally and career opportunities are available both at home and abroad. New posts, roles and responsibilities are constantly evolving, both in community and hospital settings.

Assessment methods

This programme is 135 weeks of full-time study consisting of 50% theory and 50% practice, plus 21-weeks annual leave over three full calendar years. The programme structure is based on the University's academic year, with each year spanning 52 weeks including summer and inter-term breaks. The structure of University theory and practice placement weeks means that it is not possible to take holidays outside of the set dates.

Study time is divided between contact study at the University and non-contact study for reading around the subject area and working through directed learning activities. Time is also allocated to develop practice during community and NHS hospital placements.

Throughout the three years of study, we use a range of teaching and learning strategies to provide an environment that develops your confidence and competence in providing care to women, their babies and families within maternity care settings. Examples include practice simulation, interactive lectures, discussion, group work and enquiry based learning.

The programme is designed to provide a supportive learning environment, therefore a personal tutor oversees pastoral care and development and academic tutors from each module provide support for academic studies. In practice, midwife sign-off mentors supervise your practice, teach and assess learning.

Within each academic year there are several assessments which you must pass before you can continue with your studies. These are varied and may include essays, exams and presentations. You are also assessed in practice and build up a practice progress file of evidence. Essential competencies must be met for this programme which include medicine management which includes drug calculation; physical and manual dexterity, as well as observational and auditory skills to undertake holistic health assessment and emergency care for women and their babies; interpersonal and communication skills; and record keeping skills.
