An offer from the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training

Your experience is important!

We are currently conducting a survey of skilled workers with foreign professional qualifications. So, tell us about your experience of professional recognition!

Would you like to have your foreign professional qualification recognised in Germany? Have you already applied for or received professional recognition? Have you stopped the recognition procedure or was your professional qualification not recognised? If so, we need you and your experience of the recognition process!

Why are we looking for you?

We are the “Recognition Monitoring” team at the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB). Our task is to monitor recognition procedures, as well as the advice provided beforehand and the subsequent integration into the labour market. We look into where improvements would be helpful and useful. We are currently conducting a survey of skilled workers with foreign professional qualifications.

We need you for this because you obtained your professional qualification abroad. And because you are interested in professional recognition in Germany, or you have already applied for or received this.

Your view is important! We are interested in all experiences of professional recognition, regardless of whether yours were positive or you had difficulties. This is because your experience will contribute to making recognition in Germany easier for skilled workers with a foreign qualification. So, tell us about your experience!
