The Occupational English Test (OET) opens a new test venue in Galway, Ireland
OET, the English language test for healthcare professionals, will be available at a new venue in Ireland from January 2019. The new Galway test venue will be managed by International House London.
OET (the Occupational English Test) is an Australian-developed English language test that assesses language communication skills of healthcare professionals. It provides reliable assessment of all four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking – through test material designed to reflect real healthcare scenarios.
Eve Truszkowska, Director of Exams at International House London says: “We are committed to providing services and offerings that meet the needs of the communities in Galway. By offering OET in Galway and working with our fellow affiliate school International House Galway for OET course provision, we are enabling health care 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 huge contribution to the healthcare sector.
“I’m sure OET candidates will have an excellent experience with International House London in Galway. We commend them for their passion about meeting the needs of the community through empowering healthcare professionals to demonstrate the level of English proficiency required to provide patient safety and quality of care”.
