To develop a well-rounded practitioner a variety of assessment strategies are employed within the pathway. These include: essays; observed- practice assessments; practice portfolio presentation; simulated clinical exercises; examination; and Major Project development.
You will be expected to maintain a high standard of work both in theoretical and practice components of the course as both contribute to your final marks. Being able to integrate theoretical knowledge into practical care is essential for a high calibre midwife and this is what will be tested in every assessment. Being able to function effectively under stress is essential and after being taught the theory and practising the practical many times, we expect you to be able to perform in simulated and real situations, all of which will be assessed in action, in writing and in reflection.
