Interview preparation- Important Information

Pre-interview tasks required:

  • One of the questions is listed below to enable you to prepare for the interview: 

    “What is the Nursing and Midwifery Council and what is its purpose in Midwifery?” 

  • We suggest that you spend some time preparing for your interview and think about both the role of the midwife and how your specific skills and experience to date would support you in this role  
  • Undertaking some personal research into the profession and services will help you to be sure that this is the right move for you
  • Do you know enough about the course you have applied for? Research information about the course, the Nursing and Midwifery Council's 6 core values, and visit our open days where you can come and speak to our staff and students www.wlv.ac.uk/opendays.

  • You will also attend an interview, which will allow us to learn a little more about you.
  • The panel will consist of a member of the teaching team and a second person who may be a practicing midwife, service user, another member of the team, or one of our current student midwives.
