Midwives provide care and support to women and their families during pregnancy, labour and in the postnatal period. Midwifery students will be able to recognise and manage a range of complex and emergency situations. The programmes are designed to educate midwifery students/apprentices to meet the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s requirements for registration as a midwife to deliver high-quality care to women and their families.
Successful completion of the programme will equip students to work as registered midwives in various settings and roles including hospitals, community services, universities and educational institutions, research roles, specialist roles or working abroad.
Kenye Karemo, Director of Education, Workforce Development and Research for BHRUT, said,
BHRUT is committed to developing the next generation of midwives from the communities we serve and to providing good careers. Our collaboration with UEL is a sign of our commitment. We are delighted to have played a key role and are excited about the new future this creates for student midwives and their families.”
Jillian Pride, Lead Midwife for Education at UEL, said,
The dynamic NMC-validated midwifery programmes at UEL will give opportunities for local people to provide midwifery care for the local population. We are working closely with our partner Trusts to provide excellent midwifery education within our maternity services.”
The programmes are based on childbirth as a physiological process, the foundations of midwifery care and the role of the midwife.
The midwifery programme will give students/apprentices the opportunity to develop personally and professionally and be able to practice effectively in a variety of settings, working both independently and in collaboration with other professionals.
