Beartaíodh Choláiste Thuama Nua a bhunú faoi threoir Aodhán De Búrca, Colm Breathnach, Cathal Ó
Conaire agus Séamus Ó Móráin. Tá seantaithí ag stiúrthóirí an Choláiste ag teagasc na Gaeilge ó
leibhéal na bunscoile go hArdleibhéal na hArdteistiméireachta. Cainteoirí dúchais nó cainteoirí líofa
is ea iad uile a bhfuil taithí na mblianta acu mar mhúinteoirí agus mar phríomhoidí i gColáistí
Samhraidh i gcroílár Chonamara. Tá lear mór cáilíochtaí aitheanta ag obair leis an teanga ag
stiúrthóirí an Choláiste, leibhéal na Máistreachta san áireamh. Freisin, tá taithí ag na stiúrthóirí
cúrsaí Fhorbairt Ghairmiúil Leanúnach a thabhairt ag obair i gcuideachta le heagraíochtaí mar an
tSeirbhís um Fhorbairt Ghairmiúil do Mhúinteoirí agus Pleanáil le haghaidh Forbairt Scoile.
