INVESTING IN YOUR FUTURE
Pass Your English can help you realise your dreams and ambitions. Based in Bath, UK we offer bespoke, online lessons with experienced, highly qualified examiners and teachers.
Pass Your English is proud to be one of the first companies in the UK to be accredited as a Premium Preparation Provider by the Occupational English Test (OET). This exam has been approved by the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) and General Medical Council (GMC) as proof of English proficiency for international nurses and doctors who wish to work in the UK. The OET assesses listening, speaking, reading and writing skills in a medical professional setting and students learn the type of English they need in the workplace every day, resulting in a more confident and competent workforce.
The OET is underpinned by Cambridge English and the University of Melbourne. It is reliable and secure, with robust identity and malpractice checks, centrally assessed material and a secure results verification service for recognising institutions. It is delivered in 40 countries through secure facilities and highly-trained staff.
The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is the most popular English language proficiency test for higher education and global migration, with over 3 million tests taken in the last year.
IELTS assess all 4 language skills - listening, speaking, reading and writing. It has an excellent reputation for rigour and security and is accepted by over 10,000 organisations worldwide. International nurses wishing to register work in the UK are required to score a level 7.0+ in speaking, listening, reading and a 6.5+ in writing, and medical doctors need an overall 7.5+, with no individual skill scoring less than 7.0.
University entrance requirements range between 5.5 and 7.5, depending on the university and course.
You may prefer to arrange for your staff to have lessons on a weekly or twice weekly basis or it may suit you better for them to do a week-log intensive course. Of course, your needs will depend on the number and level of your students. Pass Your English will carry out a level check and needs analysis for the group before lessons commence, enabling us to tailor the course to the strengths and weaknesses of your employees and set homework accordingly.
OET vs IELTS
Although the OET is not necessarily "easier", it is widely considered a more comfortable and relevant exam for medical professionals, because the nature of the content and context is often more familiar and useful for the workplace. For example, candidates may be more used to carrying out a medical consultation than debating current affairs.
