The ALACC Health College, Australia (ALACC) is a private Registered Training Organisation (RTO) that delivers Nationally Recognised Qualifications under the Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) levels. We are an aged care, nursing, community and allied health educational institution.
ALACC was founded by the Director - Dr Janet Lawrence who is well qualified and respected in her field of work in the Aged Care Industry. Our programs are delivered by well qualified and experienced trainers. ALACC attracts a large number of both local and international students from a variety of professional backgrounds. Several of ALACC students have progressed to undertake courses at the university, mainly courses related to nursing.
ALACC Health College, Australia (ALACC) is committed to providing quality educational programs for nurses, care staff and health care practitioners in a wide range of health care settings such as aged care, nursing, extended care, mental health, rehabilitation, and community health settings.
Janet developed a passion for working in aged care when she was the clinical teacher for university students from La Trobe University, RMIT and Victoria University in the late 80’s.
While her students undertook their aged care placements, Janet observed many practices in aged care that did not impress her and which have led to her strong belief that the elderly residents in aged care deserve better.
Janet holds the view that management should take a lead role in making the necessary improvements to deliver quality care and services to our most vulnerable members of the community. Hence Janet, from an acute nursing background, decided to explore the training that was provided in aged care and consequently found a significant gap.
Janet is a proud Registered Nurse of 40 years. From a very young age she was interested in nursing. She also discovered an equally passionate vocation for teaching.
She has been able to fulfill both roles in her own right, and with the assistance of some very special people in her life. They include her immediate family, her late husband Clarence, and supportive children Carolyn, Francis and David, as well as people from the past such as the Loreto Sisters Kolkata, and the Medical Missionary Sisters, Bihar, India.
