Hi there, I’m Kenny, the Occupational English tutor at Live Language in Glasgow, Scotland. I’ve been a teacher of English as a foreign language since 2000 and have taught both in the United Kingdom and in Poland. I have been working at Live Language since 2006, teaching both general English and exam preparation courses. In 2013, I completed my Diploma in TESOL.
I have a lot of experience of teaching medical English and have a real passion for this specific area of the language. I have attended various courses and conferences in the field of medical English, and in recent years I have prepared many students for the OET examination. I recently achieved an endorsement from the OET Centre in Australia upon completing a course, and as a result, Live Language is now registered as a premium provider of OET tuition.
The Occupational English Test (OET) is an English language test designed specifically for the healthcare sector. The test is accepted worldwide by a wide range of healthcare organisations in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Dubai, Namibia and Singapore. Recently, it was announced that you can also use the OET as evidence of English for Tier 2 visas. This means you can use one exam for registration and visa purposes.Find Out More

The OET is accepted by the Nurses and Midwifery Council (NMC) and General Medical Council (GMC) in the UK as an alternative to the IELTS exam. The English language requirements of the NMC are available here and GMC are here.
OET differs from the IELTS because it uses real healthcare scenarios and assesses your ability to use English as a healthcare professional i.e. it is a test of your occupational English. The IELTS exam focuses on testing the level of your Academic English.
You can take the test at Live Language, but all pre-test day and post-test day procedures are dealt with by OET. You should contact them directly if you have any questions about registering for the test, login issues or your results etc. Tests dates are available usually twice a month throughout the year and you can find them here. You can register for the exam here.
