Specialist Language Courses
OET for Universities and Schools

Do you prepare students for the OET test but have trouble finding good materials to support your programmes?

SLC’s OET preparation courses for medicine and nursing are designed to support teachers and students. They can be integrated into teacher-led courses or taken as independent study by candidates before they take the test.

The courses are used by OET preparation providers such as English language schools when they work with both doctors and nurses. Reach OET B also provides schools and test centres with online options for those students unable to attend face-to-face classes.

The courses are up to date and highly engaging, using the multi-media tools that today’s learners expect.

Who writes the courses?

The courses are written by Virginia Allum, SLC’s head of medical English. Virginia has been writing for OET since 2011, co-authoring the official OET online preparation course and the recent OET course book published by Cambridge University Press. Virginia works closely with the OET academic team which enables her to make sure SLC’s courses are up-to-date at all times.

How are they used?

Because they are digital, teachers can work with the course materials both interactively with their students in the classroom or outside as self-study or part of a flipped classroom programme. Students can also take Reach OET B as independent courses.

SLC provides free teacher guides and teacher training to educators .

Can the courses be ‘white-labelled’ and customised for educational institutions?

Yes. We create your space on the Learning Management System with your look, so your students see the courses as an integral part of their programme.
And as courses are digital, the units can be rearranged, edited, added to or removed to match your curriculum.

How do teachers track student progress?

With your login, you can see if your students have done their homework, for example, and how successfully.

Are the courses accredited?

Yes. The courses are all accredited by the CPD Standards Office in the UK. CPD accreditation is recognised internationally as a mark of quality for courses around the world. Each student receives a CPD-stamped certificate on course completion.

What platform do you use?

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.
