Care sector course for men at campus
New College Lanarkshire have launched a programme dedicated to getting more men into the care sector.
The course, called Health and Social Care for Men, launched at the Motherwell campus.
With the aim of reducing gender stereotypes, the programme’s objectives include getting more males into the growing sector.
Stuart Matson, community programmes manager, said:“the college has a long-standing reputable partnership with NHS Lanarkshire and local care providers.
“The college develops and delivers a range of high-quality health and social care programmes at levels from access to HND.
“The introduction of this male-specific course is a fantastic addition to our range of employability fund programmes, as it aims to address the gap that currently exists in the sector.
“We hope that the continued growth of the care sector will translate into successful and attractive programmes for men in the local area.”
Recent reports have highlighted the record-high nursing vacancies in the country, but only 11 per cent of registered nurses in the UK are male.
