Training and study days

We offer a comprehensive in-house education and training programme. Our programme is designed to support midwives in meeting the Midwifery Council and Auckland DHB mandatory education requirements and also contributes to promotion of local and National quality and safety fundamentals. 

The programme aims to foster and enhance midwifery philosophy, clinical skills and wisdom, as well as providing vital learning opportunities for multidisciplinary team-working.  The midwifery education team are either solely responsible for or contribute to, the implementation of the various study days and initiatives within the programme.

The educators also have a significant support and advisory role and encourage staff and access holders to contact them with any queries or requests. Midwives on the New Graduate Programme will, in addition, have individually tailored study days/workshops (not published on this website).

If you have a questions or queries about training, email the team on midwiferyeducation@adhb.govt.nz.
