OET Preparation for Healthcare Employers

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

Are you recruiting from overseas and need OET preparation for your candidates as part of the process?

SLC works with NHS Trusts and Health Boards, NHS England (International GP Recruitment Programme) and international healthcare recruitment companies to prepare doctors and nurses from around the world to pass OET and work in the UK, Ireland and other English-speaking countries.

Programmes are tried and tested, flexible enough to meet specific organisational needs, and pass rates are among the best in the UK.

Why SLC?

SLC is a medical English specialist. OET is a test of English for healthcare. We know the field better than anyone and have deep in-house expertise. We have years of experience working with healthcare professionals and their employers – improving their medical English, preparing them to pass IELTS and, more recently preparing them to pass OET.

SLC was the first accredited OET Premium Preparation Provider in Europe. We work with many organisations, both regional and national, around the UK and have helped hundreds of students achieve the test scores they need to work in the UK.

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

How does an SLC OET programme work?

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 OET preparation course your candidates undertake.

What support do you provide for organisations?

You receive weekly reports on key success criteria and 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. You have direct contact with both

How do I know if our candidates are making progress?

Progress is closely tracked via the weekly reports, 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.

Who are the teachers?

All SLC’s OET teachers are qualified and experienced English exam teachers. They have all been through the OET Premium Preparation Programme and receive ongoing CPD and mentoring from the SLC academic team. (link to teachers & academic team?)

What happens if someone doesn’t pass?

The OET is a high-pressure, high-stakes test. Candidates have to perform at a high level to achieve the scores required by regulatory bodies such as the NMC or GMC. 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.
