Essentials of Contraception for Midwives - Become a Course Facilitator or Organiser

Would you like to deliver a local training course to support midwives to deliver excellent sexual and reproductive healthcare? If so, becoming one of our Essentials of Contraception for Midwives course facilitators could be for you.


Our new Essentials of Contraception for Midwives half-day course provides interactive up-to-date, evidence-based learning for midwives. We plan for these courses to be delivered in a variety of locations across the UK and are looking for course facilitators to help us. 

We are looking for experienced clinicians, actively working in SRH with some education and training experience. It is desirable that one facilitator is a midwife, but this is not mandatory.

We will support you with relevant materials and resources to deliver this training. There are two facilitators involved in the course delivery, including a lead facilitator. Both roles work closely together before, during and after the course.
