As NMC lead Midwife for education at UEA from 2013 until January 2018 I held a strategic role in the quality of midwifery education at UEA. I have vast experience in curriculum development and have been involved in validation for programmes externally. I teach on  midwifery modules in the undergraduate and post registration programmes. My teaching includes research methods, mental health in pregnancy, the care of vulnerable women and service development and innovation.  In addition I facilitate seminars and tutorials on the PGR professional and personal development programme.
