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?

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?

I am divorced and take care of my children. It is important that I find a good job. Looking for work is not easy. I chose Skill BuilderS to help me. My coach helped me with a good job and self-confidence. Now I can work and take good care of my children. I have many friends at work and my Dutch is now also better because I can practice every day. I like that!

Irma, 39 years old

Together with my coach from Skill BuilderS I found a job as a packer. After a short internship I got a permanent contract. I am happy that my coach helped me.

Mo, 55 years old

I have worked as an engineer in Iraq for 5 years. Looking for work in Belgium was difficult. My coach gave me tips and information about looking for work in Belgium. I have been working as a civil engineer for a construction company for a month now.
