I am a Spanish national teaching in England. After a few years working in industry I decided to change careers and got my PGCE in Secondary Mathematics. Being from Barcelona I can’t help considering moving back home in a few years. I’d like to know if I can homologate my PGCE certificate in Spain, what would be the equivalent qualification (they don’t seem to have Secondary school teaching qualifications…they only have Primary teacher or Mathematics degree!) and what are the procedures that must be followed.
Thanks in advance for your help.

PS: for all those considering whether to go to Barcelona or Madrid…well being a local boy the choice is easy! Believe me guys you’ll fall in love with that city! And Catalan people are not closed-mind…the main reason why is hard to make local friends might be the poor level of English spoken by the majority even the young people….
Trust me….you just make a little effort in learning a bit of our language and culture and they’ll be inviting you around to their family dinners!!! 

I can't comment on your degree or give you any help with that unfortunately, but I will agree with you regarding your assessment of Barcelona.

I lived in Madrid, but if I could go back I would have probably chosen Barcelona. Don't get me wrong, I love Madrid, but Barcelona is a city unlike any other.

there are just too many reasons why!

I can't comment on your degree either...

But hey, I'm from Madrid, and I must say that I love it.

There are things that I like better in Barcelona than in Madrid, especially the Mediterranean and the Pyrenees. And the city is prettier too. And I have lots of friends there...

But I can't help but find Madrid more friendly. I find it more laid back. Sometimes it's like an American city, where nobody's really from there and everybody's welcome.

However, I have to say that now that I'm moving back to Spain I could live in either one and be happy as a clam.
