Estoy dudando con esto del C.A.P. (Certificado de Aptitud Pedagógica).
¿Cómo lo traduciriais en un currículum?
Se me había ocurrido dejar las siglas y explicarlo entre paréntesis.
¿Alguna sugerencia?
Gracias mil.

Certificado de aptitud pedagógica
secondary school teaching certificate

(or) secondary education teaching certificate

a possibility:
I think this question has been repeated, but this is generically called a "teaching certificate" and is required in some form in all US states to teach in secondary schools, so it would appropriately describe what the C.A.P. is: (El Certificado de Aptitud Pedagógica y una titulación cualifican como Profesor o Profesora de Educación Secundaria o de Formación Profesional.)

  -> Thanks Charles

disagree  Eugenio Llorente: It is not clear as to what it refers. I suggest "PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education)", confidence 5 (dic Collins)

  -> Thanks for your comment. CAP is a certificate "que cualifica como profesor de educación secundaria" and "secondary school teaching certificate" is the credential that US professors must achieve in order to teach in high schools (= US secondary schools).

agree  reubenius: If the CV is specifically for the British market, I'd translate it as PGCE. Otherwise I agree with Rebecca.

  -> Thanks Reuben. I agree, but in this case perhaps my suggestion is the most "generic" choice, since I believe a UK audience would understand "secondary school teaching certificate" while a US audience might not know what PGCE stands for.
