CIELS is unique in Carlow: the only English language school that was founded and run by a fully qualified mainstream secondary school teacher, Dave Barron, with English being one of his teaching
subjects; the longest running recognised English language school (c.26 years). CIELS is a family-run school of English language and Irish culture; its policy is to welcome small groups and offer high
quality service and programmes. It is recognised by the Department of Education and Skills via QQI/ACELS (Quality & Qualifications Ireland/Accreditation and Coordination of English Language
Schools). Its teachers are all qualified to master’s level and have many years’ experience in delivering English language programmes.
CIELS is a member and supporter of Carlow Tourism. It continues to promote language tourism for the benefit of its students and the Carlow community. In conjunction with Carlow Tourism and Carlow Institute of Further Education, CIELS specialises in the areas of Junior Programmes (summer and winter), vocational training with English, school integration programmes, English for academic purpose and Erasmus + programmes. CIELS has also designed and piloted a European Erasmus + programme with partners in the Netherlands and Finland. Testimony to the quality of its
programmes is the amount of repeat business it enjoys from long standing business partners.
