Course content

Our Graduate Certificate (GradCert) Sexual and Reproductive course combines theory and practice with placements. It will offer you, as a registered nurse or midwife, the opportunity to study sexual and reproductive health theory and apply new knowledge and skills to clinical practice. The GradCert is suitable for nurses, midwives, health visitors, school nurses, practice nurses and prison nurses with an interest in sexual and reproductive health.

Sexual health is a national priority within the United Kingdom. Many traditional family planning and genito-urinary services have integrated in order to provide a holistic, one-stop-shop approach to care.

Clinical practice is integrated with the theoretical component of the GradCert and you will be required to complete a minimum of 50 hours of clinical practice within Sexual and Reproductive Health clinics offered by Health Boards in Scotland. Clinical placements are sourced for you and you will be allocated a practice assessor who will be responsible for assessing your clinical competence.

The focus is on working in partnership with clients to promote excellence in sexual and reproductive healthcare.
