    Default Credential Teacher v Qualified Teacher



    "The study found that the district's Career Ladders program, which educates teaching aides to become credentialed teachers, is producing superior teachers."

    credential
    the abilities and experience which make someone suitable for a particular job or activity,...

    qualified: having the standard of skill, knowledge, or ability ...

    Do we have a clear-cut difference between a credentialed teacher and a qualified teacher? Does a credentialed teacher need documents in which there is a convincing proof that s/he experienced in his/her field?

    Default Re: Credential Teacher v Qualified Teacher

    It would have been more useful to look up credentialed.

    In the UK we do not call qualified teachers credentialed. I believe that in The USA qualified and credentialed mean exactly the same when we are talking about teachers.
