Ian Brangan

Ian Brangan

Director of Academic Development

I started teaching English in Spain where I lived for 5 years. I have a Master’s Degree and a DELTA in Modern Languages & Teaching. I started managing schools in Spain and came back to Ireland to manage an www.eaquals.org school for 20 years. I love working with students, language and learning. I am a School’s inspector in Europe and here in Ireland so Quality Assurance and Assessment of Progress is really important to me.
Likes: Detective Novels and Film Noir. My mother used to say ‘there’s a murder in Ian’s house every night’. I also love painting and image making. I’m learning Portuguese at the moment….

Aidan O Shea

Director of Operations

I have been involved in English Language schools since 2006, and in that time I have worked in every area of the industry. I started my career as a teacher in South Korea before completing my CELT in 2008. In 2010 I obtained an M.Phil in Applied Linguistics from Trinity College Dublin and moved into my first role as Director of Studies. Since then I have obtained a DELTA and have worked in the areas of teacher training, operations and quality assurance consultancy. I adore the multi-cultural nature of the industry and the satisfaction I get from seeing students achieve their learning goals.

I'm a keen runner and enjoy doing marathons each year. I'm as happy with a quiet night in as I am on a night out with friends, although as I get older it's a lot more of the former!
