IELTS & PTE Preparation Courses For Healthcare Employers

Do you have international nurses or doctors in your organisation who need IELTS or PTE Academic to register and practice?

Are you recruiting from overseas and need IELTS or PTE Academic preparation for your candidates as part of the process?

SLC works with healthcare employers and international healthcare recruitment companies around the world to prepare doctors and nurses from around the world to achieve the IELTS or PTE Academic English test scores they need to register in English-speaking countries such as the US and UK. 

Tutored preparation programmes are designed for groups and individuals and delivered online via Zoom, so enabling experienced exam teachers to work with your candidates wherever they are. IELTS candidates can also take the online Reach IELTS self-study preparation course and practice tests. 

Courses cover the full test or, where needed, can be tailored to focus on the one or two papers needed to achieve the scores required by healthcare regulatory bodies.

We have worked with hundreds of healthcare professionals and have achieved excellent pass rates. Programmes are tried and tested, delivered by expert teachers, and flexible enough to meet specific organisational needs.

About the courses

SLC specialises in working with healthcare organisations. We work closely with employers to create tailored IELTS and PTE programmes for their staff and new recruits.

Through the hundreds of programmes we have run since 2015, we understand the logistical challenges of working with organisations and learners around the world. We provide the flexibility needed to integrate programmes with shift patterns, long working hours and busy healthcare environments.

As online training specialists, our expert IELTS and PTE Academic teachers work with candidates wherever they may be – from the UK and Europe to the Gulf, the Indian sub-continent and Asia.

It starts with a conversation. We talk through the international nurses or doctors you have in mind, along with any considerations you have around logistics and programme support. We discuss training options.

These might include initial level assessment, potential hours of tuition, self-study courses and individual coaching, for example. We then create a proposal for you to read through, ask questions of, and adjust where necessary. When we have agreement, the programme will start when you want it to.

Throughout the programme, you will be kept up-to-date on progress, assessment results, attendance, study completion and any other issues which may impact on success. We work closely with you to ensure the success of any test preparation course your candidates undertake.

You have access to attendance and progress data whenever you need it. You also have review meetings with the SLC academic team to discuss progress, the results of pre-scheduled mock tests and the feedback we receive from your candidates and their teacher. We work through any issues together to resolve them quickly and effectively. 

All learners receive an access code. They can log into the courses wherever they are online.

Progress is closely tracked via the reporting system, the study plans the candidates follow, the feedback from the teacher and the results of the mock tests. You will know if your candidates are on track.

All SLC’s IELTS and PTE Academic teachers are qualified and experienced preparation teachers. Many are also ex-examiners and materials writers. All of them receive ongoing CPD and mentoring from the SLC academic team. Meet the team.

IELTS and PTE Academic are high-pressure, high-stakes tests. Candidates have to perform at a high level to achieve the scores required by regulatory bodies.

SLC pass rates are high, but for those who don’t succeed on the day, we have tailored options to support them towards taking a second test. These include individual study plans and/or additional coaching. We want everyone to succeed and will work with you to achieve this.

We work with Avallain AG, the industry-leading educational technology company working with global language publishers such as Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press and National Geographic Learning. The platform is constantly updated to give students the best learning experience.

The courses are written by test experts. The syllabi and materials are academically strong, based on extensive research and classroom practice, and regularly reviewed to keep up to date.

You will have a dedicated programme manager who will make sure your courses are running smoothly. You can contact them at any time. If they are away, a fully briefed alternative will be available.
