Education key themes

We are interested to hear from educators and students who have led work on developing the following in educational programmes:

  • Widening access to midwifery education e.g. for MSWs, care experienced people, those without the traditional formal academic qualifications, representation of local communities in the student midwife population; supporting students with disabilities.
  • Improving accessibility of midwifery education e.gflexible approaches and part-time courses; return to practice and shortened programmes.
  • Addressing inequalities e.gensuring that students have access to learning resources and materials that reflect different ethnicities; providing student midwives with anti-racist education; educating students to better support women and people with disabilities or from the LGBTQI+ communities.
  • Supporting the mental health and wellbeing of educators and students e.ghow you have supported staff and students to cope with the huge challenges presented by the pandemic.
