Cambridge Assessment English (part of the University of Cambridge) and Cambridge Boxhill Language Assessment, Australia, are jointly offering Occupational English Test (OET) for nursing professionals planning to take up practice in United Kingdom and Ireland.
“OET is a standardised English test which has been developed for this industry exclusively. The recognition and acceptance of the test in the UK and Ireland opens up a world of opportunities for the nurses seeking to work in these countries”, Cambridge Assessment English’ Regional Director for South-Asia T K Arunachalam said.
The healthcare professionals who want to practice and register overseas can use OET as a tool to assess their language proficiency. Cambridge Boxhill Language Assessment Trust owns the Occupational English Test which is a venture between Cambridge English and Box Hill Institute, Australia.
Nursing and Midwifery Council, United Kingdom and Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland has accepted the OET as proof of English proficiency for trained nurses.
Presently, OET centres are located in 11 cities of UK and the test can also be taken up in over 40 countries.
