Looking after our employees
Well-trained, confident and passionate staff are the cornerstone of any successful organisation and to this end Fieldbay prides itself on the comprehensive training provided to all of our Fieldbay employees.
All new staff receive a comprehensive weeklong induction package focusing on a detailed understanding of our model of care. This is delivered in our dedicated training suite at head office before a staff member commences work within the service.
Following commencement of employment, each staff member receives six months of dedicated in-house, role-specific training assisting them to confidently complete their probationary period. Staff then have the opportunity to complete a wide range of specialist training, which offers a range of QCF programmes to equip our staff for their roles and help them in their careers and personal development.
This includes bespoke training for our employees utilising our inhouse clinical teams such as Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Speech and Language, Behaviour Support and Clinical.
All staff at Fieldbay are trained by qualified trainers, in behaviour support, active support and person-centred approaches. The technique that underpins our approach to risk management in a crisis, approaching risk in a collaborative way and using relationship-based nonconfrontational approaches to risk management. This allows for more respectful and thoughtful relationships with the people we support and avoids re-traumatisation and consequent escalations in risk.
We support the Continuous Professional Development (CPD) of all our employees and want our staff to be well equipped for their roles at every level. Our Clinical Nurse Specialists and Residential Managers have taken the opportunity to take the Postgraduate qualifications in Leadership from the University of Wales Trinity Saint David and some have chosen to continue their courses to Degree level.
We have an annual Awards Ceremony to celebrate staff achievements during the previous year.
