The ageing population explosion is being experienced worldwide.
As a global phenomenon, the healthcare industry will be making dramatic changes to the way that services are provided to the elderly both in the community and home care setting as well as in a residential aged care facility (formally a Nursing Home).
Obtaining a qualification in aged care and individual support you will be highly regarded for employment throughout the different care sectors and communities. Working in aged care is a specialised and rewarding experience for those that have the passion to care and support our elderly citizens. The courses focus on all the mandatory skill sets, competencies and extra needs of care workers that require the skills in medication assistance and working with people who have dementia. There is also a mandatory 120 hours of work placement to be undertaken throughout your training.
The ACCLM is a specialised college that can ground your career in the entry-level skills and competencies needed for working with the elderly and including the individual support to those who may not be old, rather in need of care and support in their daily lives. Our courses are fully supported with modern textbooks, expert facilitators and online learning. The college is fully equipped with Medical/Nursing simulation labs that will enhance your practice and give you confidence when you go out into the field for work placement.
Job roles are diverse and opportunities are endless. You can begin at certificate III level or upskill yourself to a Certificate IV if you are looking for senior care and junior leadership jobs. These courses are an excellent opportunity to enter what will be the biggest employment sector moving forward in many countries, and this qualification will be highly sought after worldwide.
