Open Campus targets males

Management is hoping that new programmes under consideration – including web design and development and cybersecurity – will encourage them to sign up.
Male enrolment at leading tertiary institutions is way below that of females, with the Barbados Community College the latest to draw attention to the lopsidedness.
