BULATS (Business Language Testing Service) was developed by the University of Cambride, the Goethe-Institut, the Universidad de Salamanca and the Alliance Francaise. The BULATS tests include a range of tools that enable employers to check the language skills of their employees.
Level of the BULATS
In order to participate in BULATS, you must have a knowledge of at least level B1 of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).
Target groups of the BULATS
BULATS tests the language skills of employees, trainees or applicants who use or need a foreign language for their work, but is also suitable for students or participants in foreign language courses. However, access to a PC with a fast internet connection is required.
The advantages of BULATS
BULATS tests can be customised to meet the needs of individual companies. This allows companies to decide whether they want to run just part of the test or the full test. It is also possible to run the test on one day or spread over three days. Participants with a visual or hearing impairment can also take the BULATS tests.
For example, a standard test in large print or Braille is available for participants with a visual impairment, while there is a standard lip-reading test for participants with a hearing impairment. The three modules of the preparation course comprise 50 hours and can be taken either 100% online on the computer or as a blended learning course with personal and virtual sessions.
The individual sequences last 10-20 minutes and can be easily combined with other commitments or work. The BULATS test results are valid as long as your language skills do not change. It is advisable to repeat the BULATS test approximately every two years if necessary.
The objectives of BULATS
BULATS, as a Cambridge English certificate certificate, offers a fast and flexible method that enables companies and organisations to make an accurate assessment of the job-related language skills of their employees or even applicants.
