The Postgraduate Certificate in Midwifery prepares midwives for evaluating specialist midwifery knowledge and skills, to maximise management of maternal, foetal and neonatal wellbeing.
Candidates may take up to two years to complete the Postgraduate Certificate. This programme is delivered by a combination of block courses and online.
Finding the right place to build your skills and knowledge in Health and Social Practice starts here, view the programme guide:
Candidates are required to have gained an undergraduate degree in Health, Social Practice or a related discipline. Candidates without a relevant undergraduate degree may be able to submit a portfolio to apply for entry on an ad eundum statem basis.
Candidates whose first language is neither English nor Māori are required to have a score of 7.0 or better in all bands of the International English Language Test Score (IELTS), or equivalent and will be required to demonstrate the likelihood of being able to successfully achieve programme learning outcomes.
In addition, candidates for entry to the midwifery endorsement are required to:
As part of the selection process all candidates will be required to complete a professional disclosure form and supply the names and contact details of two professional referees. Candidates may be required to attend an individual interview.
Candidates enrolling in the two midwifery modules will also be required to seek the support of a mentor for formative reflexive conversations in support of their developing leadership, quality improvements, and practice development skills and knowledge.
The midwifery endorsement will be relevant to practitioners from a wide range of midwifery contexts. The Postgraduate Certificate in Midwifery is designed to enable midwives to develop knowledge and capabilities to maximise their own midwifery practice within situations of complexity, and the changing demographics of women and social infrastructure within society.
As students of the PGDipHlthSocPrac, graduates will have developed a range of flexible skills and expertise which will position them well to be responsive as clinicians and leaders. The midwifery endorsement will facilitate graduates to promote early detection and appropriate management of maternal, foetal and neonatal well-being.
The midwifery endorsement supports Midwifery Council of New Zealand’s elective education and professional activity section of recertification requirements. Completion of post graduate study will contribute to Midwifery Council of New Zealand elective education points within the recertification process. Completion of 30 credits of postgraduate study meets the Midwifery Council recertification programme requirements for continuing Midwifery education
Depending on the selection of modules, graduates who successfully complete the PGDipHlthSocPrac (Midwifery) with a B grade are eligible to apply to Wintec’s 180-point Master of Professional Practice.
Do you excel in your job but have no qualification to back it up? We can help you get qualified through our Recognition of Prior (RPL) Learning Tool.
While many people have gained work and life experience equivalent to that of formal study, they don't have that formal qualification to substantiate it. RPL allows you to use your current knowledge and experience towards gaining a recognised qualification through Informal Transfer of Credit.
If you are interested in applying, you can do so by emailing your profile through to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your profile will be forwarded to the relevant Team Manager to look at and determine if you may be eligible for recognition of prior learning. Once this has been determined, a consultation meeting will be arranged between yourself and the Team Manager. There is a $75 fee for this consultation. At the consultation, the Team Manager will discuss which modules they believe you have the experience to gain Informal Transfer of Credit for and also what documentation you will need to supply.
