Learning and assessment
The programme is delivered over 11 weeks, and incorporates 150 hours of theory and a minimum of 150 hours of clinical practice.
The theoretical component of the programme consists of:
- Directed study
- Group & individual tutorials
The first week is taught in the Faculty of Health Studies, followed by 5 study days whilst on placement.
Students undertake a minimum of 150 hours of clinical practice over 10 weeks, with the support of a qualified mentor. The actual days and hours worked are negotiated with the placement. If clinical competencies cannot be achieved in 150 hours then an extension of up to an additional 50 hours of practice MAY be possible at the discretion of the placement provider. (Practice hours for midwives may vary).
