Leading for the future (Band 5)
The first year as a newly qualified and registered midwife is an opportunity to consolidate knowledge and skills developed during training. It can be busy, exhilarating and overwhelming and may provide few chances to take stock of the role and demonstrate professional leadership. This workshop provides band 5 midwives with the space to examine their role, appreciate their worth and begin to develop and demonstrate their leadership expertise and future role development.
On completion of the workshop, midwives will be able to:
- appreciate being a reflective practitioner - looking back and moving forwards.
- demonstrate confidence and competence – communicating assertively.
- appreciate leadership at all levels – the importance of leadership for safe care.
- Plan for the future – developing midwifery expertise and professional roles.
