European Year of Skills

Andreas, Germany

Andreas from Germany

I worked in the family business for several years, but I didn’t have formal qualifications. When I started a new career, my employer suggested pursuing a validation process via Valikom while I worked. Thanks to this, I was recognised as a professional and received a pay rise. Motivated by this positive experience, I pursued a Master’s degree, which boosted my knowledge and confidence. Now, I’m on track for further career advancement. You can accomplish unforeseen goals if you put your mind to it and work hard.
