Care sec­tor course for men at cam­pus

Hamilton Advertiser - - ALL ABOUT LANARKSHIRE -

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.
