OET, the English language test for healthcare professionals, will be available at a new venue from the March 2018 test date. The new Worcester test venue will be managed by Kingsway English Centre Ltd.

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.

Rick Johns, Director of Kingsway, says: “We are committed to providing the best quality services that meet the needs of the NHS and other health care employers in the Midlands. By offering OET in Worcester 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 in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. The decision to offer the test was an easy one to make,” he 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 Kingsway English Centre. 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”.
