About our international midwifery programme (OSCE)
Our Midwifery OSCE Preparation Programme provides training to prepare internationally educated midwives (IEMs) to undertake the Nursing and Midwifery Council's Objective Structured Clinical Examination, or the NMC OSCE, which is part 2 of the Test of Competence to be eligible to register with the NMC as a Midwife. The programme will help you to successfully prepare for completing the NMC OSCE.
Our 15 day training programme is delivered face to face and provides you with the opportunity to learn through classroom teaching, hands on role play for clinical stations and mock examinations. You will be assessed individually on your clinical skills and knowledge and constructive feedback provided to improve and develop your knowledge and competences to meet the NMC requirement for professional registration. You will also be given the opportunity and encouraged to work in groups, undertake self-assessments and participate in reflective learning activities as part of your learning and developmental needs.
Before your programme starts, you will gain access to learning centre on MS teams where you will find key resources and materials to help you to prepare for your course. Throughout and beyond the programme, you will be able to access a wealth of resources and materials to help you with your learning and successfully complete your NMC OSCE exam.
You will be expected to complete some pre-course work in preparation for your training. When enrolling you will receive a login access for our online learning platform a week before the training and it is important that you complete and email in the pre-course work to be marked. This is part of your contractual requirement with us. Please do not leave your coursework to the last minute as we need to mark it and get feedback to you in a timely manner. You will need a work email address for the pre-course to be sent to you (If you do not have a NHS email you will need to contact your recruitment support / practice educator to have this set up. This is your organisations responsibility).
