OET opens a new test venue in the UK with Medical English Plus, Brighton.
OET, the English language test for healthcare professionals, will be available at a new venue from February. The new Brighton test venue will be managed by Medical English Plus.
OET (Occupational English Test) is an Australian-developed English language test that assesses the English language proficiency of healthcare professionals seeking to register and practice in English-speaking environments. It provides assessment of all four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking – through test material designed to reflect real healthcare scenarios.
Pam Lynch, Managing Director of Medical English Plus, said: “We are committed to providing services and solutions that meet the needs of the community in Brighton. By offering OET at Medical English Plus, 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 in the UK, which relies heavily on overseas trained healthcare professionals.
“I am confident OET candidates will have an excellent experience with Medical English Plus. We commend them for their passion for empowering healthcare professionals to have the level of English communication skills required for safe and effective care”.
