I was given these two companies to get conversion done:

http://www.ece.org/

http://www.wes.org/

I haven't been to either of them yet, but would be interested to know if they can convert NVQ's as that is what i need also.

Good luck.

To the OP: I can actually tell you the answer to that question!! :dance:

I know, because after I got my Associates in Applied Science degree from a U.S. community college, I was curious to know what the U.K. equivalent was, so I looked into it. The AAS is a 2 year vocational qualification, and its U.K. equivalent is an NVQ level 4.

So there ya go. ;)

I have looked into this recently for my husband. Level 2 NVQ = 4-5 GCSEs at A*-C. This is roughly equivalent to a high school diploma. If you mean vocational qualification, I have no idea and maybe someone else will be along to specify.
