Dedicated, enthusiastic, and highly professional course team
N E S T recognises that your success is the key to our own
The NEST Objective
To provide the best possible grounding for the career minded postnatal care ‘graduate’, in tandem with providing a platform for those experienced professionals already active in the field to re-visit old thoughts and ideas and refresh, bring their own valuable experiences to the table and transfer those skills to family home.
The NEST Message
Women supporting women.
The value of supporting women’s careers in both an academic yet practical sense is a particularly powerful message because postnatal /neonatal care is predominately, and almost completely, a female professional’s arena, reflected in the composition of the NEST Faculty’s staff and student community and to provide knowledge, not perceptions of what that care should be.
The NEST Offering
Unparalleled range of expertise
We off an unparalleled range of creative, topical and postnatal care-focused courses across key areas of expertise. Within each of these areas, we offer a diverse mix of full courses, modules, study and master classes in addition to bespoke courses to suit your environment, enabling practitioners to build upon their credits towards broadening their portfolios.
Our Education Strategy
Study that combines experience, learning & communication
In this profession, there are no quick fixes and no short cuts because you are the core for information, the teacher, the mentor, the ‘professional’ friend, the ears and the eyes entwined within so many different family dynamics. The only pathway to eliminate errors is through carefully structured study – to draw on both your own, and the experiences others and to explore the art of communication, all of which we consider to be part of our constructed programme of learning.
Our Communication Strategy
Whilst the digital revolution has resulted in a widening of the number and types of organisations involved in this field, there is no replacement for the organic presence of long established one-to-one postnatal carer and the privilege of intimacy that brings – a powerful, yet vulnerable, place to be. So we facilitate our courses on a face to face basis, emulating every area of that care as far as we are able within an academic learning environment.
