Writtle University College and ARU have merged. Writtle’s full range of college, degree, postgraduate and short courses will still be delivered on the Writtle campus. See our guide to finding Writtle information on this site.


Welcome to our portal which is designed for all supervisors and assessors of midwifery students at Anglia Ruskin University.

It will provide you with resources and information to help you successfully support, supervise and assess students within the practice setting.

If there is any information that you think would be useful to add, please contact Louise Jenkins, Lead Midwife for Education at [email protected]

Reporting sickness and absence

It is your responsibility as a registered professional to inform Anglia Ruskin University of a student's sickness or absence and to ensure this is recorded and signed on the student's timesheet.

The University has a duty to inform the professional body of the exact hours a student has experienced in the clinical area and it is therefore important that accurate records are kept.

Please inform the University of a student's absence. Email [email protected] or call 01245 684816, stating: student name, student ID number, clinical site, reason for absence.

Information to support supervision and assessment in practice

We have now introduced a new curriculum for 2021. Find out more about the new curriculum (PDF).

Midwifery Ongoing Record of Achievement (MORA)

This is a new nationwide document which involves a pass/fail assessment and stays with the student over the three year period. It allows the recording of:

  • EU directives (‘RedBook’)
  • NIPEs
  • Achievements
  • Skills
  • Feedback
  • Reflections
  • Assessments
  • Progression Plans

Find out more about the MORA with our NMC proficiencies for midwives video and guide to MORA (PDF).

Lapses in Professionalism (LiP) policy

Many complaints against health care professionals involve issues of conduct rather than competence. Inadequate professional behaviour during undergraduate training – even when such concerns are deemed to be 'low-level' – is an acknowledged predictor of fitness to practise deficiencies in subsequent years (Stern, Frohna and Gruppen, 2005).

Our intention is to ensure a holistic approach to the assessment of student professionalism, including a transparent monitoring and recording system that supports the identification of both low and higher-level concerns.

Below are example Practice Assessment Documents for each academic year which reflect the NMC Standards for Student Supervision and Assessment (SSSA).
