Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.
We asked Siobhan Canny from Health Service Executive to give some advice for people considering this job:
I would advise anybody wishing to pursue a career as a Midwife to focus on having science subjects in their Leaving Certificate. The basic entrance requirements are high at the moment so a good Leaving Certificate is essential (unless applying as a mature applicant).
To be accepted onto a training course you have to do an interview where they will determine whether you are suitable for the job or not. In the interview I would advise you to relax and to be yourself, answer honestly and do not be afraid to promote yourself.

Undergraduate awards typically reflect three to five years of study after secondary school and include Ordinary (Level 7) and Honours Bachelor Degrees and Higher Diplomas (Level 8's).
Undergraduate awards may be achieved directly or through a series of progression steps. Learners may choose to progress upwards from a Level 5 to a Level 6, Level 7 and finally a Level 8.
Undergraduate awards are awarded by the HETAC or Higher Education Institutes.
3rd level Graduates are qualified for a wide range of occupations, and their education prepares them for roles involving specific skills, and for coordinating, supervising, managing, or training others. Examples include accountants, sales managers, computer programmers, teachers, chemists, environmental engineers, criminal investigators, and financial analysts.
The programme comprises a B.Comm. type framework with selection of major decided in Year 3 and has been deliberately structured in this way in recognition of the challenge Leaving Certificate students face in deciding on a specific business career path.
Students have the option of completing a 16-20 week paid work placement in Year 3 or of studying abroad in one of the programme’s 50 partner universities.
Years One & Two
Year 1 and 2 modules cover the typical core business and management disciplines and are designed to provide a foundation for more in-depth study in Years 3 and 4. Students take 8 core modules in Year 1 and 7 core modules + 1 optional module (either EU Integration or Finance & Economics) in Year 2.
Years Three & Four
There is a strong core of management and strategy studies with a wide range of options … allowing students the opportunity to focus on their preferred discipline or to follow a more eclectic choice if they wish. Students select 4 core modules and select 2 out of 8 option modules in Year 3 and 1 core module and between 5 and 10 option modules in Year 4 (depending on module ECTS weightings) out of 25 options. This very extensive range of options provides the students with the opportunity to select options most closely aligned to their preferred career path.
Students can choose to specialise in one or a combination of six “majors”:
Human Resource Management
Supply Chain Management
