TKT vs. CELTA

Posted By: Alex <>
Date: Sunday, 24 March 2013, at 12:23 a.m.

I already have my CELTA, and have some ESL teaching experience. Now I am seeing jobs asking for a CELTA *and* a TKT (Teacher's Knowledge Test by Cambridge). To be honest, I'm a bit turned off by a school that would require a TKT from applicants who already have a CELTA and experience. It's a requirement, and you can take it after you arrive. And of course I don't have to apply to their company. But I worry that I will now be expected to get another certification, despite completing a CELTA (which was no easy task, and cost me). Are others seeing this? Have any of you taken the TKT? Is CELTA no longer the standard? Thanks!
