Become a Student Midwife Online Course

    Love the idea of becoming a Midwife but not sure how to get started?

    Don’t worry! We have the perfect solution for you

     
     
    Being a midwife is a uniquely rewarding, empowering and important role. Yours is the first touch on the skin of a newborn baby. Your mix of personal and clinical care will have an impact that will last a lifetime.

    But becoming a midwife isn’t easy.

    For some, the application process seems too daunting to even begin. For others, their applications end in rejection, with no real explanation as to why. Women (and some men) who feel naturally drawn to this profession can find their hopes of a career in midwifery slipping through their fingers. It can feel like the opportunities are just out of reach or that chances have come too late.

    Who is this course for?

    Whether you are looking for a new career as your children grow; have just finished your school or college education and are considering where to go from here; have applied to become a midwife but not got through; are unfulfilled by your current job and are weighing up a career change; want to re-train or re-enter education or have simply always wanted to be a midwife but assumed you didn’t have what it takes- then this course is exactly what you need.

    We can show you that it’s not too late and there are opportunities, you just need to be prepared to work for them!

    Why should you choose OUR online course?

    There are other online courses available, but there’s one HUGE difference between us and them. Those courses might have an impressive list of modules covering everything from pre-eclampsia to suturing, infection control to the importance of breastfeeding….which they claim will fast-track you through your midwifery training.

    The simple fact is that unless your UCAS form is selected, and unless you are able to demonstrate that you are the right sort of person with the right sort of aptitudes at your university selection day, NONE of that knowledge will matter! Everything you need to know about practicing midwifery will be covered on your degree course. There are no early short-cuts or fast-tracks through that. So taking the time and energy to learn all that information in advance just isn’t the best use of your time or money.

    But right now what you do need to do is learn how to write an application which ‘sells’ you and provides real evidence which will inspire the university recruiters about who you are as an individual, and how you would benefit the profession if they choose you.

    Not everyone with potential is offered a midwifery place at uni; it will take more than natural aptitude to overcome the selection hurdles. You need to know how to prove you are exactly the sort of person they need; you need to show you are more than capable of meeting the challenges of the role; and you need to know how to convince a selection panel that you are head and shoulders above your competition. We know how to bring the very best out of you, so you can shine when it counts.

    Then you need to understand what the selection day tests will be (whether it is just an interview or a range of different assessment exercises), and learn HOW to tackle these in the most effective way possible. Hannah, our Psychologist is a Selection professional (which means she designs assessment exercises for all sorts of roles). This means she is qualified to show you how to do your very best in these exercise. She knows all the mistakes candidates make, and how to avoid them. It’s this sort of guidance we are proud to say is is unique to Midwife Career.

    Of course having more knowledge about the role, the profession and the responsibilities of a midwife will always be useful. We cover as much as you need to know about that at this stage, enough to show that you are informed, you know where to look for up to date information and how to apply it to interview questions. But we don’t overload you with clinical and technical information, which although is interesting, will not improve your chances of actually gaining a place at uni. Right now, you need to stay focused and allow us, the experts in Midwifery AND selection to guide you. This is why our course is different, and this is why it is the best one for you.

     

     

    How we can help
