Certified work experience

Many people acquire professional knowledge and skills during their working life. They often cannot prove these acquired competences with a formal document, e.g. a certificate. In order to accelerate the validation (that means: to establish the value of something) of non-formally and informally acquired knowledge in Germany, the German Confederation of Skilled Crafts (ZDH) and the Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK) have developed the project “Valikom Transfer” (duration until 10/2024) together with the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). In this project, non-formally and informally acquired knowledge is identified. Vocational experts then assess whether the… Read More

The district of Tübingen prepares for refugees from Ukraine

About 19,000 refugees from Ukraine are registered in Germany so far, according to the Federal Ministry of the Interior (as of March 5th). However, there are probably already many more.

As a precaution, the district, cities and municipalities are, therefore, calling in a press release to report vacant living space that the district can rent for the… Read More
