Developing your midwifery career

At UHS, your professional development is one of our key priorities. We are really keen to support and develop our midwives and provide many diverse career progression opportunities. We provide exceptional opportunities for education and further training, as well as bespoke facilities, to help ensure you are fully confident in your ability to support and care for mothers and their families.

Return to practice (RTP)

Been out of practice for a while? Has your NMC registration lapsed? We may well be able to support a return to practice midwifery programme for you.


Preceptorship is essential in preparing you to be a midwife of the future and our preceptorship programme will ensure you to get your career off to a flying start and will help you make a smooth transition from student to midwife.

Post-reg education, leadership and advanced practice

Courses and opportunities are available to develop clinical and leadership skills both in-house and externally with our partners.

Simulation training

Learning by simulation is available to all midwives at all levels. This includes rehearsing clinical skills and managing emergency situations with the multiprofessional team.


You can look forward to a well established and comprehensive induction programme and supervision with a buddy to support you in those first few weeks with us.
