As highlighted in SkillsOne, the community services and healthcare sector is Australia’s largest employer, employing 11.4% of the workforce. To gain registration to work in Australia, overseas-trained health professionals must pass an English test: the Occupational English Test for Health Professionals (OET), one of Australia’s most highly esteemed English tests.

Our EAL course provides language training for overseas-qualified health professionals to achieve the standard of English required for employment in Australia and is also suitable for migrants looking to do further studies in the health sector.

During our course, you’ll be taught strategies and tips for doing the OET test.
