    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?

    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.
