In Response To: which Celta program is best? (Kay)

There are dozens of 'TEFL certificate' providers round the world. CELTA, moderated by Cambridge and taught by their licenced centres, is considered the benchmark standard for content, assessed practice teaching, and number of hours. The Trinity CertTSOL is considered equivalent, as is the SIT CertTESOL.

Others offered by individual universities may have similar content and features and school Directors may accept them as equivalent, but thy may also not want to go to the bother of comparing curriculum documents if someone with a better-known CELTA applies.

Many TEFL certs are available onl-ine or over a weekend. They do NOT match up to the CELTA standard.
