CELTA, known as the Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (previously the Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) is the most popularly acknowledged pre-service ESL teaching qualification in the world. CELTA is suitable for teachers with little or no previous teaching experience and is the minimum requirement for language teaching jobs in most countries. CELTA courses are accredited by the Cambridge English Language Assessment.
The Certificate IV in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) is an Australian accredited qualification for ESL teachers. Certificate IV in TESOL meets the requirements of the Australian National ELT Accreditation Scheme (NEAS), and is recognised within and outside the country. It is suitable for international students with a high proficiency in English language, willing to teach English as a second language in Australia or overseas.
CELTA is accredited by the Cambridge English Language Assessment and recognised both in and outside Australia. The Certificate IV in TESOL is purely an Australian qualification for teachers who want to teach in Australia or overseas. CELTA is more recognised outside Australia than the Certificate IV in TESOL.
The CELTA and Certificate IV in TESOL courses are equally practical in nature offering over 100 hours of study and a minimum of six hours observed and assessed teaching practice. Both these TEFL qualifications are recognised for teaching English language to international students in Australia and many other countries.
