Working with SLC is easy

Step 1

Fill in the form and we will contact you as soon as possible.

Step 2

We talk to you about your and your candidates' needs, go through different training options, and discuss potential timelines, budgets and schedules. This is captured in a proposal document we share with you.

Step 3

If you accept the proposal, then we contact candidates to give them access to study materials and lesson schedules. Where appropriate, we carry out an initial level assessment and needs analysis. We also create a personalised platform for your institution with everything you need to know about how it works, so you can monitor student activity and progress.

Step 4

You candidates embark on their courses. We work with you throughout their time with us, so you know how they are attending, engaging and progressing and, very importantly, when they're ready to sit their test.

Ask us anything. Anytime.

Speak to us directly and get instant advice. Please complete the form, or call or email using the details provided. One of our team will go through what you’re looking for and guide you through the training options available to you. 


About the courses

OET preparation courses cover OET paper by paper, question by question. They systematically give candidates the language, the skills and the exam techniques and strategies needed for them to achieve a high score. 

Lessons take place on Zoom and are taught by highly experienced and qualified exam teachers. The schedule is agreed beforehand and shared with everyone involved.

Candidates all have access to SLC’s Reach OET B courses, used worldwide by OET candidates. The Reach OET B materials are all online and available on all devices. Learners receive an access code with clear instructions. There is well over 100 hours of expert content for candidates to support their lessons. Reach OET B also includes four open live lessons every week that candidates can attend to strengthen their progress. 

Yes. We create your space on the Learning Management System with your branding and colours, so your students see the courses as an integral part of the training you provide.

As courses are digital, units can be rearranged and adapted to meet your candidates’ specific profiles. We can add company documents such as staff handbooks should you wish.

Lessons are tailored to the specific needs of the participants attending group or one-to-one courses. 

The Progress Promise is our commitment to candidates and their sponsors to give everyone studying with us ongoing input and support as they work towards OET, even after their course has finished.

So, after a tutored lessons have come to an end, or a subscription to Reach OET B has expired, all candidates still have access to our four live lessons every week. This means they can continue to study, review and revise with our expert teachers and fellow OET students. And all for free. 

We want you to know that we’re with candidates and their sponsors all the way to achieving success in their OET test.

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.

OET is accepted as proof of English language skills by regulatory healthcare boards and councils around the world, including the UK, US, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand and Canada. In the UK, for example, candidates can use OET as proof of English language competency to register with the GMC or the NMC.

The training outlined on this page is for closed group training for candidates from your organisation. SLC does not offer open groups but all users of Reach OET B may attend the four open group online classes per week as part of their package.

Yes, no problem. We often work with individuals (or small groups) with specific needs, who may not be able to attend group lessons, or who need additional coaching if they don’t achieve the scores they need on first sitting, failing for example in one or two papers. 

If you have candidates who would benefit from the targeted attention that one-to-one lessons offer, just get in touch to talk through. 

For lessons, we use Zoom – it’s simple and intuitive to use, has excellent teaching features and works well on relatively low bandwidth connections.

For the Reach OET B study materials and the online practice OET tests, 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 taught by highly experienced and qualified English language teaching professionals. They are all exam tuition experts and have received extensive OET-specific training from SLC’s academic team. We monitor feedback and results carefully and build this into their ongoing CPD programme. Meet the team.

All online self-study courses are available on subscription for anyone to sign up to, including Reach OET B Medicine and Reach OET B Nursing.

For tuition, we provide this to closed groups and individual students being sponsored by employers and healthcare recruitment companies.

Many OET preparation courses are delivered to closed groups of students. This allows for courses to target their specific level and needs, to be taught on convenient schedules and map to specific training budgets. 

Reach OET B has four open lessons given every week that anybody can attend to support their progress towards OET.

OET course sponsors are given access to dynamic reporting tools, so they can view lesson attendance and engagement with study materials at any time. Progress reports include the results of any practice OET tests given. Reviews are also scheduled with the academic team to keep you up to date with the progress candidates are making and how test ready they are.
