OET Preparation Courses for Nurses

Take OET Preparation Courses with SLC, Europe’s only OET-accredited Premium Preparation Provider.

SLC’s OET Preparation Courses for Groups are designed specifically for closed groups from NHS Trusts, private healthcare groups and healthcare recruitment companies. We prepare nurses and doctors from around the world to sit the OET and pass first time.

Your candidates will be trained to meet the NMC’s requirement of a Grade B in each of the four OET papers. We work in partnership with you to ensure the maximum impact of any programme.

Setting up for Success

At the very start of any training programme, the SLC assessment process ensures you have an accurate picture of your nurses’ English, so course content, duration and schedules are set correctly.

We then ensure nurses have the strong language foundation needed to start a tutored OET preparation course, using online preparatory courses, such as our English for Nurses course or a General English course to improve vital grammar and language skills. These are done prior to tutoring, so allowing classes time to focus on exam preparation.

Group Tuition

Classes take place in the SLC online classroom on an award-winning platform used by universities and educational institutions around the world. Being online enables your candidates to work with expert OET-trained teachers wherever they are and schedule lessons around hospital shifts.

Online learning is now widely recognised to be as effective, if not more effective, than traditional classroom learning. Our results have been excellent to date.

OET classes are live and interactive. Learners work with their teacher to the learn the language, test techniques and test strategies they need to score a Grade B in the OET test. Each learner also has a personal learning plan, so they can focus on the areas they need most.

Progress Assessment and Course Reporting

In the middle and at the end of every course, every candidate takes an OET test, completes a detailed feedback form and receives one-to-one tutorials. We ensure candidates are thoroughly prepared and can walk into the test centre with confidence.

Employers receive reports on progress, attendance and feedback throughout the course. We carry out regular reviews, so everybody knows what is happening and where any changes need to be made. Issues are addressed quickly and effectively.

Why SLC?

SLC has been working directly with NHS Trusts, Health Boards and private healthcare groups to prepare hundreds of candidates for IELTS and OET tests. Our courses map to recruitment processes, offer strong flexibility, and are delivered by experts. We blend expert tutoring, detailed reporting and targeted self-study. Our results are excellent.

SLC is the only OET training provider in Europe to have been awarded the prestigious OET Premium Preparation Provider status by OET.
