Do I need a qualification in Catalan/Valencian to teach English in local concertado schools?
No, you don't. I used to do the same. However, in order to be able to do a good job, it's great if you are able to understand Catalan. Lots of children grow up outside the city and will mostly speak in Catalan, as opposed to Spanish.
One additional note though...prepared to be severely underpaid! Concertados teachers and paid by the ajuntament, whereas the school will usually have to pay English teachers out of their own pocket, usually through an agency. Therefore, expect to make much less than the tutores.
