More men have been urged to work in nurseries to help address a chronic shortfall in the number of childcare staff across Scotland.
An extra 18,000 new workers will be required by 2020 to meet a Scottish Government commitment to expand free childcare places, but not enough new members of staff are being trained to fill the vacancies.
