I have a VDAB voucher? How do I start?

What are you looking for? What do you want? What are your talents?
We want to get started with your talent.
Let our local experts guide you.

We have an accreditation and considerable expertise in guiding:

  • Job-seekers

    Together, we figure out which direction you want to take to find a suitable job. Do you know exactly what job you want, but you still can't find a match? We take stock of your situation and decide how to proceed. 

  • Young people

    In your job search, we look for a suitable job together. Not sure yet what direction you want to take? No problem, we'll work it out together. You know what job you want, but you have little experience or don't have the right papers? Let us help you take the right steps.

  • Higher educated people

    We have many years of experience in the guidance of higher-educated profiles. In addition, we also have a large network of companies and focus on job hunting. This is how we're able to find the perfect match between your ambitions and a suitable working environment.

  • 55+

    Based on our years of experience guiding the over 50 age group towards the labour market, we know there are many prejudices surrounding age. Together, we disprove all those prejudices! We look for the best support for you. Still not sure what direction you want to take? No problem, we'll find that direction together and find a good match with a suitable employer from our wide network. 

  • Mental wellbeing

    We support you in your search for a viable work situation. Together, we look at how you can deal with barriers and obstacles along the way. With special attention to your personal situation and mental well-being, we help you achieve your goal step by step through small successes! 

We want to help you.

Some questions and answers

How long does a coaching pathway take?

A coaching pathway at Skill BuilderS takes at least six months. If you find work sooner we’ll still be available for questions and support without obligation. If you speak a different language, the pathway is extended to 12 months.

What is the difference between an introductory interview and an intake interview?

During an introductory interview or explanation on the telephone we ask you specific questions, such as What kind of job are you looking for? What do you want? What obstacles do you face?

An intake interview is carried out at the start of the coaching. We take the time to discover your interests and talents and map your career expectations.

What if I don't get on with my coach?

We have a strong team of enthusiastic coaches in various fields of expertise. All our coaches are on hand to help you find an appropriate job. Check out our website to see which coaches work in your area. 

You don't have a good rapport with your coach? Then too we'll find a solution.
 

Who will be my coach then?

During the introductory interview (without obligation) we discuss any career questions. Together we look for the desired location, time and coach who can provide the best help. 

Can I also talk to you outside business hours?

  • You can call us at 0800 64 009 – we'll gladly help you between 8 a.m. and 5.30 p.m.
  • Or send an email to voucher@skillbuilders.be – we’ll answer within 24 hours
  • Or surf to www.begeleidingnaarwerk.be and make an appointment via the appointment tool or leave your question in the chat.
     

Where will I be coached?

Always close to your home. Our 68 locations are spread across Flanders and Brussels. All our locations can be found on our site. There's sure to be one near you. You can count on successful coaching, digitally and on-site at the location of your choice. 

Who went before you?

Despite my bachelor’s degree, I did not find work right away and that frustrated me enormously. When I look back on my guidance, I mainly remember that I learned not to give up hope if you do not find work immediately. My coach kept encouraging me to look for work, even in other sectors.

The coaching you get at Skill BuilderS is more than coaching to work. It is also an inner coaching to who you are and what your abilities and knowledge are. You are welcomed with open arms and the coaches support you in all areas.

Cindy, 55 years old

From the first moment there was a good contact with my coach Ellen. Ellen understood my situation and did not put any pressure on me. She showed interest in my ambitions, past and experiences. Together we went looking for my future. Ellen kept in touch via messages and email. Something I feel more comfortable with as a young person than a zoom meeting or physical appointments. During the coaching I discovered that it is OK to not know what to do with yourself for a while. Ellen taught me to work with what is present in myself to achieve my goal. I am now working at Agfa Gevaert as a Process Operator. And … I am super satisfied!
