This is a new role within the Maternity Service in the SEHSCT. My role is to support staff by overseeing the preceptorship/induction of staff, with particular emphasis on newly trained staff and those who need extra support. I play a pivotal role in education provision within the Maternity department both in a clinical and a classroom settings.
Registered Midwife with 5 years post - registration experience as a Band 6, 3 years of which were in an intranatal environment.
Hold or willing to work towards a Post Graduate Certificate in Education or equivalent.
Having worked for 6 years as a Midwife, rotating to all areas of the service I became a Midwifery Sister in Intrapartum care. I worked in this position for 15 years developing my clinical and management skills. During that time I completed my Masters in Midwifery, became a Basic Life Support Training and a trainer in Advanced Life Support in Obstetrics and completed my PGCE.
The job requires the post holder to be an expert clinician very much involved in a clinical role.
The job provides the post holder with the opportunity to educate the midwives of the future in best practice and assist them to become skilled, competent practitioners.
I would encourage anyone wishing to take up this role to gain extensive clinical experience. When it comes to providing education to new staff the one thing that they say they value most is the knowledge that you know the issues they face on " the shop floor". You must have a desire to teach and pass on your experience and use the time in clinical care to become involved in education initiatives.
