The Occupational English Test (OET) opens a new test venue in Australia.
OET, the English language test for healthcare professionals, will be available at a new Australian venue from February 2019. The new Me test venue will be managed by Discover English Exam Centre.
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.
Joanna Kelly, Chief Executive Officer of Discover English said: “We are committed to providing services and offerings that meet the needs of the communities in Melbourne. By offering OET at Discover English Exam Centre, we are enabling healthcare professionals to demonstrate their English language proficiency for professional registration and employment purposes.”
“OET, which is owned by Cambridge Assessment English and Box Hill Institute, has a unique and proven 30-year pedigree and the test is recognised by healthcare regulators world-wide. The decision to offer the test was an easy one to make,” she concluded.
OET CEO, Sujata Stead, said the new venue would make a significant contribution to the healthcare sector.
“I’m sure OET candidates will have an excellent experience with Discover English Exam Centre. We commend them for their passion for meeting the needs of the community through empowering healthcare professionals to achieve the level of English communication skills required for safe and effective care”.
