This school is recognised by ACELS, a service of Quality and Qualifications Ireland, for English language teaching (ELT).
(ACELS is an acronym for Accreditation and Coordination of English Language Services)
It was established in 2011 by its two Directors who have over 80 years combined experience in teaching, management and guidance at both second and third level.
The mission of WAE is to provide high quality and affordable courses in a caring and stimulating learning environment. We work in close partnership with secondary and third-level schools and colleges in the Waterford area. In addition to English classes we provide complementary social and recreational programmes and organize excellent accommodation in student residences.
Our primary activity is the Junior Summer School. However, we are responsive to special requests from groups identified by our esteemed agents and partner schools.
Waterford Academy of Education, School of English, runs classes in three locations in Waterford City – Waterford Institute of Technology, Newtown School Waterford and St Patrick’s Gateway Centre. WAE also works in Dublin and Wexford through its partnerships with Ireland’s Eye Language Agency and Kingsford Language and Equestrian Centre.
