The Occupational English Test (OET) opens a new test venue in Sydney, Australia with Western Sydney University The College.
OET, the English language test for healthcare professionals, will be available at a new venue from April. The new Sydney test venue will be managed by Western Sydney University The College, at its Sydney Olympic Park campus.
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.
Dr Nicolene Murdoch, CEO says: “We are committed to providing services and offerings that meet the needs of the communities in Western Sydney as well the greater Sydney region. By offering OET at Western Sydney University The College, we are enabling health care professionals and students to demonstrate their English language proficiency for professional registration and employment purposes”.
OET CEO, Sujata Stead, said she was pleased to be able to offer healthcare professionals in the West of Sydney a new venue at which to sit the test.
“Western Sydney University The College is a lovely venue and I have no doubt that our candidates will have a positive experience of taking OET with them. 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”.
