The Midwifery Council of New Zealand has formally approved the Occupational English Test (OET) to be recognised for midwives needing to meet the English language proficiency requirements of the Council. To be successful, midwife candidates must achieve either an A or B in all sections. If candidates are not successful, they may re-sit sub-tests but they must be successful in the sub-test no later than twelve months after their initial test.

The main responsibility of the Midwifery Council of New Zealand is to protect the health and safety of women and babies during pregnancy, childbirth and postnatal period by ensuring that midwives are competent and fit to practice midwifery.
