The effect of cuts can be witnessed by the announcement of the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) that there are a very few teachers in the educational institutions who can train students’ midwives.
A spokeswoman for the RCM was of the view that 10% teachers have left the jobs between 2010 and 2011. Cathy Warwick, who is the chief executive of the RCM, was of the view that as per rules, not more than 10 students should be enrolled under one teacher. However, as per the current scenario, there are 14 students under one teacher.
“These figures reflect an increasing tightening of the belt and squeeze on the resources, as institutions are unable to hire as many midwife teachers as they need to keep”, further affirmed Warwick.
The government has said that they will make sure that total number of teachers gets increased. Referring to the same, Warwick said that it is a high time now that the government should fulfill its promise and recruit more teachers.
If the number of teachers does not get increased then its direct will be seen on the quality of training. Students will not be able to learn things and its will impact their practice. Warwick has asked the authorities concerned to take the action.
