You need to remember to bring:
There will be a group exercise and an individual interview. The individual interview will normally be with a midwifery tutor and a midwife from one of the local Trusts. You may also have the opportunity to meet current midwifery students to ask about their experience of the midwifery course. You will be required to complete a self-declaration form disclosing any previous and/or pending involvement with the police.
We expect interviewees to demonstrate a depth of understanding about the midwifery profession, the role of the midwife and how midwives can help to meet women's needs. This may be enhanced through reading professional sources and having some work experience within midwifery or a closely related area. Having a clear understanding of the course is also very important. We are also looking for excellent communication skills, the ability to be empathetic and work as part of a team as well as independently.
A Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check will be carried out once you accept our offer, unless you let us know about any criminal record either on your UCAS form or at the selection day, in this which case the DBS check will be done immediately. If you are made an offer, an Occupational Health questionnaire will be sent to you so that we can confirm that you are able to undertake the course.
