Care. Excellence. Success.


Founded in 1979, CES has more than 30 years of experience in teaching the English language to students from around the globe.


In England all teachers have, as a minimum, either the Trinity TESOL or Cambridge CELTA qualification, and many hold specialist EFL teaching diplomas and degrees. In Ireland every teacher holds a university degree as well as an ACELS recognised teaching qualification. Many also hold specialist English language teaching qualifications, such as the DELTA.


However, CES teachers do not only have amazing experience, but also the enthusiasm, positive attitude and natural ability to make language learning fun.


The combined academic knowledge, administrative skills and depth of experience across its team of staff means CES delivers courses and services that meet the exact requirements of its students.


In 2007, CES was awarded the ‘Star English Language School in Europe’ with four centres or fewer, and was shortlisted for the same award each year between 2008 and 2011. CES is the only school to have been nominated for this award for 5 consecutive years.


CES is recognised and accredited by the British Council in England and ACELS (the Irish Department of Education) in Ireland. A number of its year-round schools are full EAQUALS members, and CES Ireland is also a founding member of Marketing English in Ireland (MEI).


All CES schools in England are full members of English UK.



“CES is delighted to be partnering with V1 Media Group; their market knowledge and commitment to excellence in the EFL sector will help CES grow and develop. They will also assist us in developing our market share and also advise us on new areas to grow our brand internationally.”
