School Overview

School Description

Founded in 1979 and located in the heart of Dublin city centre, we at CES offer both full time (4-week) and part time (10-week) CELTA courses. Our courses are delivered by a team of highly qualified and experienced trainers who are available to offer guidance, support, and feedback to all participants

We have over 40 years of experience teaching students from around the globe and have successfully been involved in teacher training through much of this through Erasmus+ programmes and initial teacher training.

At CES we are happy to offer extra and continued support before, during and after your CELTA through our pre-course work, CES Moodle support site and CELTA Jobs.

Our 100% online full time courses have content delivered by tutors in real-time lessons via Zoom so you don't have to worry about self-directed study. Our tutors will be there to guide and support you.

If you need more flexibility, our part-time option is available. With this you can study when and where it suits you. Our tutors will be on hand to assist with guided lesson planning on a weekly basis.

Help with Employment

Here at CES, we are proud to liaise with EF and NOVA language schools who are recruiting teachers in China and Indonesia (EF) and Japan (NOVA). Working with them will give you the opportunity to quickly gain some more language teaching experience as well as putting into practice all that you have learnt on the course. They are often on the lookout for enthusiastic and qualified teachers.


CES offers a number of homestay and self-catering accommodation options for students. All homestays are carefully selected and visited regularly to ensure consistently high standards and a warm welcome. Homestays are generally located in suburbs but we also have self-catering and half board residential options which are closer to the school, for students aged 18+.

Student Reviews

Words most commonly used to describe this centre

Personally, it was a very remarkable experience and a turning point in my teacher's career. The tutors were always clear and concise. Not to mention there were always ready to support candidates when they needed.

, CELTA student,

The teachers were very helpful, and the structure of the course in terms of skills practice and teaching general English knowledge was well-organised. Really appreciated it. Maybe task-based learning could be introduced m0re.

, CELTA student,

I really enjoyed the course and its content. The tutors were engaging, helpful and encouraging. They provided huge support and guidance through an intense and challenging programme and at times went out of their way to give the students the best learning experience possible. I feel I got a lot out of the course and a lot of that is because of CES and it’s tutors and their hard work. I would absolutely recommend anyone to undertake the CELTA with CES.

, CELTA student,

I thoroughly enjoyed the course, the tutors were incredibly supportive and gave us great encouragement throughout the course. They gave us very informative feedback on our teaching practice so that we would know how to improve our teaching practice sessions. We also got excellent feedback on our assignments.

, CELTA student,

Overall very impressed wit the team, they are very knowledgeable and personable. It was a tough month but ultimately very rewarding.

, CELTA student,

It was a great experience. I learned a lot and would recommend this course to anyone who is thinking of becoming a teacher. The teacher trainers were very knowledgeable, helpful and supportive throughout the whole course.

, CELTA student,

The online CELTA course was very well-organised and the tutors couldn’t have been more helpful. Overall a really valuable course for my teaching experience.

, CELTA student,

I found the course really practical and rewarding. Everything we did in the input sessions gave useful information for our teaching practice and teaching in the future. The tutors were always available for help and gave constructive feedback. I would highly recommend the course.

, CELTA student,

My experience on the course was fantastic. The tutors were very supportive and they were always ready to help.

, CELTA student,

Studying the face-to-face CELTA course at centre of English Studies Dublin was a decision that changed the course of my professional career in a significant way. Thanks to the tutors' professionalism and their quality of teaching, and also their feedback and support, my skills as an ESL teacher have taken a 360° turn towards what I have always wanted to be — learning how to follow a more student-centred approach, better instruction-giving/checking and a wide range of tools for lesson planning. Undoubtedly CES is a place I would 100% recommend to study this course because of its central location in the heart of Dublin. With both native and international students, CES offers an environment in which to feel welcomed by fellow students and tutors with whom to share experiences and great teaching insights.

, CELTA student,

Very professional staff, highly detailed feedback after each teaching practice. Thanks to the coaching I received throughout the course, I felt drastically more confident at the end than I did at the beginning. It was an extremely rewarding four weeks. Would highly recommend it to anyone interested

, CELTA student,

This course has been an enriching experience for me. The tutors were incredibly supportive and motivating. The feedbacks given by them really helped me to grow as a teacher. Both the assignments and the teaching practice helped me to learn and implement all the methodologies and concepts. It gave me insights on how to make the class more learner-centric and reduce the teacher talk. I gained enough confidence as a teacher and this course prepared me to face all the challenges on the way. Stuart and Suzy made the whole journey engrossing and engaging. I made new friends and also made enough memories that I will cherish throughout my life. Throughout the course, we learnt different methods to make teaching and learning fun and effective. The four weeks of CELTA opened umpteen doors of opportunities for me and I can't be happier than this.

, CELTA student,

Excellent tutors, a lot of useful information and a great experience
