About Us


ACET is a family-run language centre and the ACET Team is our greatest advantage. The team creates a supportive, caring and friendly environment for all students and clients.

Our CEO, Odile Migieu, founded Cork Language Centre International (CLCI) in 1975.  As ACET expanded, Odile’s husband, Pat Coade, who had been working as a quality consultant, joined the centre in 1989.   Their daughter, Joelle started working in ACET in 2000, after graduating in Management and Marketing. Today ACET is the oldest remaining school of its type in Ireland.

In 2012, we decided to re-brand from CLCI to Active Centre of English Training (ACET) to reflect our modern, proactive and innovative philosophy.

Our long-standing experience and customer focused approach has given us a leading name for quality within the industry.  The ACET staff aim to continuously improve the support we give to our partners and students and take pride in our flexibility, integrity and loyalty.
