Default A level requirement??

We are looking to immigrate to Alberta Canada in the next couple of years. My wife is concerned that her education in the UK will not get her a job. She currently has only done her GCSE's but has over 11 years office work experience. She has looked at job adverts online and noticed that most say a 12th Grade completion (A Levels UK standards) is required.

Can anyone advise whether she would have difficulties in obtaining work or would it be advised for her to obtain A Levels prior to going?

Thank you in advance.

Grade 12 is basically sucessful high school graduation, leaving school with O levels or whatever would count the same, but if its an issue you can allways do hse..high school equivalency. A lot of what is taught in A levels in the UK is left to first year university here...hence 4 year degrees being the norm.


Personally I think the work experience carries more weight..just phrase the resume to say "Graduated from XXX School 19XX) or whatever.
