Advise on moving to spain
 
Hi, I am just trying to gather up as much information as possible. Myself my partner and my 2 young boys have decided we are starting a new life in Spain. However at the moment I am just trying to find out as much as possible on education nurseries, schools and also just life in general. Please feel free to share any information thank you.

It all depends on our job and income really. If you already have that sorted out then life will be whatever you make of it. If you need to look for work then life may be very difficult

Schooling is very complicated as stated in the other thread

Schooling is the problem that is really stressing me!! We both have jobs to get us by till we find something better. So work and accommodation isn't really worrying me its only education that is scary!!!

You probably won´t be able to find anything better!

Unemployment is still at over 30% in the South of Spain. Even if you were fluent in Spanish and very well qualified, there would be very limited opportunities

As a British person your only real choices if you are not fluent in Spanish are teaching English or servicing holiday makers. Both are very poorly paid

If you are a professional with a special skill and fluent in Spanish then the best thing would be to secure a job with a Spanish company before you come over. The best places to do this are Madrid and Barcelona

Hi and a warm welcome to the Spanish forum on BE. Myself and Fred James are the moderators for the Spanish forums whilst BEVS moderates Europe. Moderators are there to ensure that the site runs smoothly within the rules of BE. This is so that members gain the information that they are looking for and find their experiences on the forums to be friendly and worthwhile.

Problems and complaints should always be addressed to a moderator who will look into the matter and deal with it efficiently and fairly. Our members who post in the Spain Forums are usually friendly and helpful with a wealth of knowledge about the issues of living in Spain. I hope that you enjoy your time participating in the forums.

Please let me know if you need any further help.

Rosemary
