Proof of English Proficiency
Even if your qualification is recognised AND you are eligible to register, IF English is not your first language, you must now provide proof that you are able to communicate well enough to work in UK practice. The best way to do this is through the International English Language Testing System.
You now need to achieve a score of at least 7 with a minimum of 6.5 in one of the components (listening, speaking, reading and writing). There is a cost for taking the test, which averages between 200-250 euros, so it is best to do as much preparation as possible to ensure you do not have to pay to resit.
There is preparation advice on the IELTS website via the link above and we can also give you details of a tutor who can help with personal tuition. If you would like more information about this course, please send us an email and we can arrange a no-obligation consultation for you.
Right to Work in the UK
If you are eligible to register and believe you will be able to achieve level 7 in your IELTS test, then we can help begin your search for a role in the UK.
To work in the UK you will need to find an employer who will sponsor you for a ‘Skilled Worker Visa’. Many employers now have a Certificate of Sponsorship that enables them to do this. Contact us for information on which employers offer sponsorship.
For more information on visa sponsorship see UKBA Visa info. This is quite a complicated process, so please reach out to us for help.
