**NOTE: This course has no vacancies for September 2024 or January 2025. The next intakes are September 2025 and January 2026.**

**Course overview**: From conception to birth midwives play a critical role. Train as a midwife at Teesside University and you will play a central role in the most amazing and challenging journey in a family’s life. Within this partnership you will be supporting women, through pregnancy, birth and early parenthood to make informed choices about their care.

Supported by midwives and academic staff throughout your training our course balances theory and practice to prepare you with the knowledge, skills and leadership to work as a midwife as an independent practitioner and within the multidisciplinary and agency team. A midwife is the lead practitioner for women with low risk care and is required to make decisions, coordinate and manage care for women with complex needs in conjunction with the woman and the wider team.

A range of practice placements give you the opportunity to develop your skills as a midwife and put into the practice the theory you have learnt in University. Our trust partners include County Durham and Darlington Foundation Trust, Gateshead Health NHS foundation Trust, North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust and South Tees NHS Foundation Trust.

The course is underpinned by the latest research and will develop your critical analysis skills to deliver care to the highest standard for women.

On successful completion of the course you gain eligibility to apply for registration as a midwife on the Nursing and Midwifery Council Professional Register.

Please note 100% attendance is expected during this course.
