Wanted: Cosla wants more men to work in nurseries across Scotland to solve staffing crisis

by Andrew Denholm - Herald Scotsland
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.

Currently some 95 per cent of all students who train in childcare services at Scottish colleges are female.
