OET, the English language test for healthcare professionals, will be available at a new venue in Greece from December 2017. The new Athens test venue will be managed by Hellenic English Council.
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.
Konstantina Alevra, Centre Exams Manager says: “We are committed to providing services and offerings that meet the needs of the candidates all over Greece. By offering OET at Hellenic English Council, we are enabling health care professionals to demonstrate their English language proficiency for professional registration and employment purposes”.
“OET, which is owned by Cambridge English Language Assessment and the Box Hill Institute, has a unique and proven 30-year pedigree, and is accepted in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Dubai and Singapore. The decision to offer the test was an easy one to make,” she concludes.
OET CEO, Sujata Stead, said the new venue will make a huge contribution to the healthcare sector.
“I’m sure OET candidates will have an excellent experience with Hellenic English Council. 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”.
