What Jobs Can I Get With a Celta That I Can't With a TEFL?
Whilst these are just general points, as when companies get desperate for staff they sometimes have to compromise, but under normal circumstance you need a Celta to work for the British Council as well as to became a Cambridge tester. It is also worth remembering that a CELTA is seen as a lot more reputable than a TEFL. If an employer is looking at several candidates then it is more likely the one with a CELTA will get an interview. If you work somewhere that you specifically need a Celta pls e-mail me at uklaoshi@gmail.com.
