Preparing you to deploy the A-EQUIP model of midwifery supervision

Dates: 1, 2 and 26 February, and 2 March 2018, 10:00 – 16:00

The professional midwifery advocate (PMA) is the new leadership and advocacy role designed to deploy the A-EQUIP model. Our course will prepare you to undertake the role of PMA, and is for midwives who have completed the preparation of supervisors of midwives course (PoSoM).

We see the role of the PMA as an ambassador for cultural change and believe this role will ensure that women, babies, families and communities remain at the centre of all that we do.

We want to enable you to work with the A-EQUIP model, and believe A-EQUIP will have a positive impact on the physical and emotional wellbeing of midwives and those working in maternity services, and will also improve the safety, quality and kindness to the mothers and babies that we work with.

On our course, you will:

  • gain an understanding of the statutory changes in midwifery supervision,
  • learn to work with the A-EQUIP model as a means to continual improvement,
  • identify the skills you bring as a former supervisor of midwives,
  • and develop new competences including restorative clinical supervision (RCS).

At the end of our course, you will be equipped to:

  • keep women and babies at the centre of all that you do,
  • build and develop professional networks,
  • meet contractual obligations,
  • and explore how the A-EQUIP model can work locally and regionally.


Please note that the course will only run if there are enough candidates booked onto the programme and that a decision regarding this will be made 1 week before the start of the course.
