CEC re-opens in Cork

CEC re-opens in Cork

CEC – Cork English College has reopened for classes after 6 months of closure due to Covid-19 restrictions.

The college is thrilled to reopen the doors and welcome back their students & staff for in-school classes. Successful online classes have been going on but it is great to see them back doing what they do best, face-to-face lessons. 

Reopening took months of Zoom calls, consultations with Health & Safety professionals and careful planning.

The main CEC building on St. Patrick’s Bridge has undergone significant changes since the college closed. They have added protective screens in the reception, college offices and meeting rooms. Hand sanitiser stations have been installed in all areas of the building for students and staff to use. Additionally signage and stickers have been placed all over the building. Students have to wear face masks at all times in the building and sanitise at every opportunity. Each student has their own specific desk in a specific classroom, with class start, break and finish times staggered to limit the flow of people in the building at a given time. They have developed a one way system to minimise contact.

CECs primary aim was to create a safe environment for both students & staff. Thus far the return to school has gone exceptionally well, with a number of students commenting on how the stringent new safety measures have made them feel comfortable and relaxed.


The online classes (CEC Virtual) are going to continue and will be complemented by classes with an all new self-study package as well as a 100% online Cambridge CELTA Teacher Training course.


Reopening the doors of CEC was the result of months of hard work and they should be proud of their efforts to help students realised their study dreams.
