Master's Programmes



Founded in 1979, CES has over 30 years' experience teaching the English language to students from across the globe. Our motto is Care – Excellence – Success.


  • In England all teachers have either the Trinity TESOL or Cambridge CELTA qualification, with many holding specialist EFL teaching diplomas and degrees. In Ireland, teachers hold a university degree plus an ACELS recognised teaching qualification, with many holding specialist EFL teaching qualifications, such as DELTA.
  • CES places the highest importance on providing a safe and secure environment for all of our students and staff, but especially for young learners and juniors.
  • Our recruitment processes and procedures will reflect this on-going commitment by making every reasonable effort to ensure that we employ appropriate, highly qualified, professional members of staff who understand and share this commitment.
