OET, the English language test for healthcare professionals, will be available at a new venue from September 2019. The new Coimbatore test venue will be managed by PeopleEnglish.
OET (the Occupational English Test) is an Australian-developed English language test that assesses the language proficiency 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.
Hari Krishnan, CEO and Director of PeopleEnglish said: “The healthcare needs are ever growing thus offering tremendous career opportunities for healthcare professionals. PeopleEnglish, with its prime objective to improve employability skills across industry verticals, is proud to offer OET, which is growing rapidly amongst the healthcare professionals and is being recognised in several countries. We would like to contribute to this growth and look forward to this partnership with OET. We also plan to offer assistance in test preparation to candidates, tutors and institutions.”
OET CEO Sujata Stead said that OET is immensely popular in Kerala in Southern India, and that venues in the region were regularly filling up ahead of test day. “We have listened to our candidates and are working very hard to open more venues to meet capacity. The new PeopleEnglish in Coimbatore will go a long way towards meeting demand. We look forward to working with them to provide OET test-takers with an excellent test-day experience,” she said.
