Course Overview

Run in our Dublin locations, our ERASMUS+ Teacher Training courses have a strong emphasis on cooperation and collaborative learning.  With a focus on peer-to-peer learning, course content provides opportunities for discussion and the sharing of ideas with your colleagues from different European countries.

Before you arrive, you will be sent a pre-course needs analysis to and send some optional pre-course reading. Our courses aim to identify your practical teaching needs and apply our course content to meet your own learning outcomes and requirements.

All of our courses are eligible for Erasmus+ Funding. 


Course Aims

This course will seek to assess the teacher pre arrival and meet their language needs as stated. By the end of this course, the participants will have had the opportunity to develop all their language skills as well as have a better understanding of English language structures and vocabulary.

When can I start my course?

You can begin your Standard, Intensive and IELTS Prep courses every Monday morning. If you are taking Cambridge, IELTS Express, Business English and Teacher Training courses, these will have specific start dates and times during the year which they run.

What are the Class times?

In Dublin, your classes run Monday to Friday, starting at 09:00 and ending at 13:00. Classes break at 11:00 for 20 minutes until 11.20.

If you are taking the Intensive Course, afternoon classes start at 14:00 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, finishing at 16:00.

If you are taking the Intensive Course, afternoon classes start at 14:00 on Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursdays, finishing at 16:30.

What is in this course?

This course consists of a range of language lessons taught using the Communicative Approach. This puts emphasis on utilising the language that course participants already know and building on core skills that they have already developed. This course contains a range of self-study strategies to encourage life-long learning.

What time does the school building open?

Our school buildings open at 08:30 Monday to Friday and are not open at the weekend.

Will the classes follow a textbook?

Your lessons are developed by your teachers and are designed specifically to meet your needs. Every week a new programme will be shared with you so that you will be aware of that week’s learning goals.

All classes at CES use a coursebook. These are available from reception and form an essential part of your lessons. Please note, each level uses a different book, so you will need to purchase subsequent textbooks as you progress.

How will you decide which class I will be placed into?

You will sit a placement test on your first day at our school. This will assess your grammar, writing and speaking skills and is used by our academic teams to place you in the most appropriate class.

Will I be able to move up or down levels during my stay?

We offer a system of continuous assessment during your study and at the end of each week our academic team will discuss which students should move to a different level in order to maximise their language experience.

If you feel you are in the wrong level, speak to your class teacher or to the Director of Studies.
