UKVI IELTS for UK nursing jobs
Many of you would have heard of the UKVI IELTS. Though this Secured English Language Test (SELT) as enlisted in the UK government website has been around for a while, it has become quite a buzz recently.
So what is the UKVI IELTS?
UKVI is the United Kingdom Visas and Immigration, a part of the Home Office of the UK government. This UKVI has recorded the IELTS for UKVI in its list of secured tests and only the UKVI IELTS is accepted for Visa purposes, whenever mentioned so by the government. A band score of 4 to 5, which is the minimum language requirement equivalent to the CEFR B1 level, is what will be needed to work in the UK as a Senior Carer.
Why are we talking about the UKVI IELTS now?
The UK government has added a new job category in the Shortage Skill List which is the Senior Carer or Nursing Assistant profile. To be able to apply to this opening a UKVI IELTS is a requirement for the visa processing. This job opening will give anyone with a nursing background, be it GNM nursing or a candidate who has completed a graduation in nursing, an opportunity to land a job in the UK in care homes and old age homes.
So what is the SENIOR CARER job profile all about?
This is not a registered nurse job profile but that of a nursing assistant which requires you to assist patients who are probably quite old or have some terminal disease and needs constant support for their daily activities.
