Occupational English Test (OET) opens a new test venue in Ireland with Cork English College (CEC).

OET, the English language test for healthcare professionals, will be available at a new venue from May 2018. The new Cork test venue will be managed by Cork English College (CEC).

OET (Occupational English Test) is an Australian-developed English language test which assesses language communication skills of healthcare professionals. It provides assessment of all four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking – through test material designed to reflect real healthcare scenarios.

Marc Cullen (Director of CEC) says: “We are committed to providing services and offerings that meet the needs of the communities in Cork. By offering OET at CEC, we are enabling health care professionals to demonstrate their English language proficiency for professional registration and employment purposes”.

“OET, which is owned by Cambridge English Language Assessment and the Box Hill Institute, has a unique and proven 30-year pedigree internationally, and is quickly gaining recognition by medical bodies in Ireland. The decision to offer the test was an easy one to make, and CEC is proud to be able to offer this exam in Cork,” he concludes.

OET CEO, Sujata Stead, said the new venue will make a huge contribution to the healthcare sector.

“I’m sure OET candidates will have an excellent experience with CEC. We commend them for their passion for meeting the needs of the community through empowering healthcare professionals to have the level of English communication skills required for safe and effective care”.
