College To Host Event On Caring Careers For Men

City College Plymouth is hosting an event to encourage men to enter caring professions traditionally dominated by women.

The ‘Males into the Caring Professions’ evening will give visitors information about opportunities within education, social care, childcare, nursing and complementary therapies tomorrow night.

Staff and current students will be on hand to talk about courses, and show examples of their work.

The event at the Kings Road campus, which runs from 5pm to 7pm, will include hands-on sessions with virtual babies and pregnancy suits.

Faculty of health lecturer Lyn Walker said: “If you want a career that demands intelligence, courage, skill and offers great opportunity in a number of professions, health and social care or early years education courses could be right for you.”

Visitors are welcome to drop-in throughout the evening, but can also register their attendance in advance.
