Pebble+ for Midwifery

This section is for student midwives using Pebble+. Specifically how to create and edit your workbook. If you’re new to PebblePad, before you begin please read our getting started guide.

Create a PAD workbook

At the start of each year you need to create the Practice Assessment Document (PAD) workbook you’ll use. This happens only once a year, so you’ll only need to do this process at the start, and not again until you proceed to the next academic year.

Your workbook has been prepared for you and is available in your Resource Store. You can create only one copy and this will be filled-in across the academic year.

Create & complete EU Log

Similar to your PAD you’ll need to also create another workbook for your EU Log.

You’ll need to create one copy which lasts for the duration of your course – all three years (not one workbook per year).

With the workbook created you can use the other individual templates to add skills to each page.

Record ‘at risk’ cases

Some of the skills you record need to be marked as ‘at risk’. These are collated on a seperate page in your EU Log.

You can add your own tag to the template. Include ‘risk’ as a tag and this will add the template to the At Risk page in your workbook.


Watch the video to explain how to do this.

Create & complete your ORA



Finally, you’ll need to create a third workbook, the Ongoing Record of Achievement  (ORA).

Like the EU Log, this workbook lasts for three years (not a new workbook each year).

It will need to be signed off at the end of each year by your sign-off mentor.
