    After already getting qualified in TEFL, is it worth doing the CELTA?

    I have an online TEFL qualification which is not as reputable as I might have liked. Is it really worth the effort and money to get the CELTA now?

    Preliminary answer ( I am getting a TESL) from what I understand, CELTA is more highly valued in some parts of the world than TEFL.

    Basically TEFL and CELTA are similar programs.  If you went to a reputable TEFL School and the certificate is recognized with a practicum and you have teaching experience you may wish to look into the DELTA (Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Language).
