Providing antenatal care, parenting classes, clinical examinations, screening etc are just some of the tasks a midwife has to do on a daily basis. To ensure the best health outcome for both mother and baby, a midwife must ensure that everything they do is done to perfection. A course in Midwifery Management and Education can prepare you for that.

To be a good midwife, you have to be approachable, trustworthy, knowledgeable, and someone new mothers may rely on in times of need. As a midwife, you are going to be the primary point of contact for new parents. Your job will entail offering evidence-based information and assistance to help people in navigating their pregnancy and prepare for parenting.

Our Midwifery Management and Education course can teach everything you might need to know about being a midwife, from the history of this profession to the ethical implications in the practice of midwifery.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
