Access to HE midwifery

Hi

I am currently doing a access to higher education diploma for midwifery and am struggling with my assignment. The unit focuses on th understanding of progressing to higher education and i do not understand it at all lol. The title is evaluate key sources of information but what kind of information would I need to include? Information about the course I want to study at uni or information about midwifery in general?

Thank you

In that case it is about applying to HE and not general midwifery. So key sources:

UCAS website
NHS careers website
The NMC website
Uni websites - midwifery course pages
NHS course finder

Hi, I've taught on Access to HE nursing and midwifery for over 10 years. Just in case anyone is a little unsure why there is a unit on this, an Access pathway has a number of development unit's included alongside topics you study. They are typically things like Applying for H.E, Study Skills, Presentation & Research Skills - the centre chooses what these are and presents them to an awarding body to form a package of study that needs to be approved. There are usually 45 credits for the studied modules, and 15 credits for the development units. Typically for Nursing and Midwifery you would do some Health Science, Biology, and a social science module, usually health studies but sometimes Psychology.

How would you structure an essay on such a topic though?

It is best speaking to a tutor for your program, as we use a different assessment method for the study skills units. We have a booklet where learners evidence certain skills such as choosing 5 university options, evidence they have completed their UCAS application, reflect on their choices, choose one, and justify the choice.
