Pupils offered insight into health and care careers

HUNDREDS of teenagers from across the region were this week given an insight into jobs in the health and social care sector.

Pupils from S4 and above attended an event the Inspiring Futures Careers event at Dumfries College on Tuesday.

They had the chance to meet health, care and emergency services professionals, educators and trainers, as well as representatives from the armed forces, to hear more about careers in both areas and how to enter those roles whether it be directly, via an employability programme, further education or a higher education route.

Dumfries and Galloway Council’s chief social work officer Stephen Morgan was one of those there and said: “There is a great variety of roles available to anyone looking to enter a career in social care or social work.

“Through our social work services, we have a great range of opportunities for anyone who would like to enter the vocation. From supporting children and families, adult social work, adult protection, sensory support, fostering and adoption, or justice social work – there is a career for anyone.

“We are passionate about the work we do, and we are delighted to take part in the Inspiring Futures careers event. We want to inspire more students to join our workforce and explore the career pathways that we provide.”
