We can help you to become a Midwife in 8 Easy Steps

Sign up to our online course to gain fascinating insights into the profession PLUS how to be selected to become a midwife

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.

We have designed a short and effective e-learning course to address these problems and give you the chance you need to become a midwife.

Are you:

  • Looking for a new career as your own children grow?
  • Finishing your education and thinking about what to do now?
  • Disappointed after having a midwifery application rejected?
  • Unfulfilled by your current job and considering a career change?
  • Keen to re-train or re-enter education?
  • Determined that a midwifery career is right for you but are unsure how to make it happen?

Then this course is exactly what you need!

There are plenty of opportunities for you to achieve the career you were meant for, but it can be hard to find them without help. That’s what we are here to do.

Is an online midwifery course the right step for you?

Only you can decide how much help you need to get your application to train as a midwife accepted. But experience has taught us that the more help you can get in advance of applying, the better your chances of getting in will be.

But it absolutely has to be the right sort of help.

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.

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

How we can help

With midwifery being such a sought-after career, competition for places at university is very high. Many applicants are put off at the first hurdle and don’t complete their application; others have their applications rejected and can feel demoralised about what to do next. Even if you are lucky enough to be invited to a selection day the odds of gaining one of the few places on a university training course are stacked against you. The tests are tough and the assessors will only offer places to the very best candidates.

Our course is designed to help you overcome ALL these hurdles, preparing you to submit a top notch application, deliver an impressive selection day performance and be the sort of midwife you have always aspired to be.


Our course will give you the skills to:

  • Learn more about the role of a modern midwife

  • Find out more about your aptitudes and whether you would be a good fit for the role
  • Gain insights into the recruitment process and what you need to do to apply
  • Learn strategies to write a high quality, stand-out application
  • Access useful behind-the scenes insights which will give you an advantage at interview
  • Learn the secrets behind what university selection panels are really looking for
  • Provide strong evidence to recruiters that you are an ideal candidate for the role
  • Avoid the common mistakes which will rule you out of the running
  • Gain an inside look at the assessment day tests and exercises
  • Pass difficult numerical and verbal reasoning tests
  • Handle role-plays, presentations and group discussions with ease
  • Practice interview questions and how to answer them
  • Deliver a high standard written work, irrespective of the test format
