At PCQ Healthcare we have been helping European Nurses since January 2016 trying to pass IELTS and since 2017 we have been helping European Nurses pass the OET
When we started it was all trial and error, first we sourced a cheap online platform that provided online on demand courses, IT DIDN’T WORK, then we provided self-study materials and tried to motivate nurses with constant phone call, IT DIDN’T WORK, then we hired teachers, designed a courses which were delivered live online to groups of 6 nurses, IT DIDN’T WORK, but after almost 3 years we have worked it out and it’s a combination of everything we tried.
With the busy schedule a nurse and has, and their limited finance, you need a flexible, on demand system, but you also needed accountability and guidance, you needed to know how you were doing, were you focusing in the right area, completing the right tasks, studying the right things and ultimately is it all working.
Well like I said, the solution came from a combination of all 3.
- Online On Demand
PCA Nursing have partnered with the leading OET preperation online platform to get all our nurses access to an online on demand self-study platform which will be used in conjunction with our tailored 6 Months to a B OET program.
All candidates will have a 6 month self-study plan created on day one of the program, this program will involve 8 hours of study time per week and will be tracked with you by your tutor, making you accountable to someone, which we learnt is an essential requirement.
Along with your study plan you will receive a walkthrough of the online platform to ensure that you will receive the best possible results from using it.
- Tutor lead classes
Together with your self-study you will receive 1.5 hours per week of tutor lead classes, these will be small class sizes of no more than 6 students and will be delivered hand in hand with your online and self-study program.
From these classes you will be assigned tasks from the your platform which will be graded weekly by you tutor and your progress being continuously measured.
This will give you both accountability and guidance which we also learnt was essential.
- Practice Test
Practice makes perfect was never a truer saying, we learnt that for a nurse to be successful they needed to understand what they were doing, what will be expected from them and how to best give the best answers giving them the best chance to achieve the required the grade.
Through the online platform you will complete weekly practice test in the areas of
You will also receive a monthly practice test in
All practice test will be checked and you will receive a full assessment on what you have done wrong, which will include feedback as to where you need to focus more effort.
Once you are achieving B Grades in all your practice tests your OET Exam will be booked, you will receive a 30 minute pre-test review 48 hours before you test time to ensure all is good.
