Aldo, our Training Manager, completes the London Marathon and raises 1k for the Welsh Air Ambulance

posted Apr 25, 2018, 4:51 AM by Keith Jones

Hello everyone!
 
First, thank you all for the support. I've been struck by the sheer depth and breadth of support for my marathon. Genuinely now I wouldn't have finished without knowing you were on the course, tracking me, watching tv, or wondering how it was going. 🤧There were times toward the end where the heat and pain would have finished me, but I didn't let it because of you all!!!
 
Also thank you for the totally amazing levels of donations for my chosen charity the Welsh air ambulance- I'm on my way to raising close to £1000 for this worthy cause. Again, without that I would not have finished.
 
The run itself was tough. I'm not a road runner! The weather was also hot!! The first half was ok, the second my feet started to hurt in a way I hadn't prepared for- under my small toes!! The pain just kept getting worse and worse. My pace slowed badly and I saw the pacer for my wanted time jog past and there was nothing I could do!

Fieldbay is now a member of the Huntington's Disease Association

posted Sep 11, 2017, 4:52 AM by Keith Jones


We have always provided support for people with complex mental health and physical needs, including people who have Huntington's and similar neurological conditions.  

Huntington's disease is an inherited condition that damages certain nerve cells in the brain.

This brain damage gets progressively worse over time and can affect movement, cognition (perception, awareness, thinking, judgement) and behaviour. In recognition that special skill is needed in supporting this group we have arranged training for our staff in collaboration with the Huntington's Disease Association, and now include this topic as part of our induction for all staff.

Fieldbay helps University of Wales win a commendation

posted Apr 25, 2017, 2:14 AM by Keith Jones   [ updated Apr 25, 2017, 2:18 AM ]

Discussions held between Fieldbay and the University of Wales resulted in the development of a Post Graduate Diploma in Leadership that is benefiting 118 learners and 53 different employers in Wales. 

 The qualification was designed to meet Fieldbay’s need for developing existing staff and underpins our learning and development strategy. This safeguards the organisation’s ethos and culture from dilution and enables us to appoint from within rather than recruit to senior positions externally.

The Project has also acted as a catalyst for stimulating the learners’ enthusiasm for lifelong learning and the importance of embedding robust personal development plans in the workplace.

The project has resulted in Fieldbay being recognised with the ‘Excellence in Learning and Development’ award, by the regional CIPD team and the University of Wales being highly commended at this year’s Universities Association of Lifelong Learning conference.
