Anna Sherliker

Programme Lead BSc (Hons) Midwifery

Biography

I joined the University of Salford in 2007 as a Lecturer of Midwifery, having previously been in education since 1993. Overall I have spent 26 years in midwifery practice, education and research, with an interest in young people’s sexual health, researching and developing service provision of vulnerable young women and families. Within education I have taken the lead in curriculum development, leadership and admissions and the educational needs of midwives.

Current role and responsibilities I currently lead the pre-registration BSc (Hons) Midwifery programme (156 weeks) enabling a student centred approach to teaching and learning, with integration of the universities strategy and goals. I am a Supervisor of Midwives at Pennine Acute Trust which means that I have the responsibility to protect the safety of the public, and maintaining a strong clinical link supporting clinical practice and development.
