In June of this year three members of care staff at Fairways Nursing Home in Trearddur Bay gained their NVQ 5 in “Leadership and Management in a Social Care Setting”. This is the highest managerial qualification one can gain within residential care. It is the qualification that each of our Nurse Managers must hold to be registered by the Care and Social Services Inspectorate for Wales (CSSIW), an so it is particularly impressive that three additional members of staff at Fairways should be qualified in this way.
Team Leader Eirwen Cochran joined Deputy Nurse Manager Gaynor Sturgeon at Bangor Cathedral for the graduation ceremony. Fellow Team Leader Donna Hughes had also gained her NVQ 5 but unfortunately was on holiday when the ceremony took place.
As a company, Fairways now has seven senior members of staff with their NVQ 5 in Management, with a further two due to qualify within the next 12 months.
