No, an NVQ won't mean anything to most Americans.

But do you already have a visa/green card/citizenship? That's the crucial bit, and the bit that proves impossible for 95% of people!

Welcome to the forum btw.

I wouldn't worry about pros and cons yet, as the US is notorious as the hardest country to emigrate to so you need to see if you are eligible as a first step. Most people on here have got there from either marrying a US citizen, or being headhunted.

Unfortunately, being a teaching assistant will not get you there, what does your husband do? It may be that he's your best shot at getting a visa.

Have a read of this to understand the various visas available and see if you think you'd qualify for any. You can then come back and ask questions about the visa route you think you'd be going down.........http://britishexpats.com/wiki/Pulaski's_Ways:_How_to_Live_and_Work_in_the_USA

Good luck.

Ok, I work here as a TA, they pretty much take your word for it in my school district, however, I was going to go back to school until I found out what the international student fees were for our local university, and had to get them converted to their American equivalent, long story short, as I'd done the 2 & 3, they deemed it, along with my other exams, equivalent to an associates degree.
I think all you need to have graduated high school, our district has one flat rate of pay, which only increases with service years.

Unfortunately you know that old joke about NVQ's? Never more apt over here when people get issues with university degree's...and A-levels mean nothing over here either.

Wiki link above is the best spot, can say yes to one of those, then look into everything else, other wise it is all unfortunately a complete waste of time.
