Why did you decide to earn a national vocational qualification certificate?
I was mainly guided by the increased competency needs at my workplace.
How does the national vocational qualification that you have earned help you as you exercise your profession?
I am extremely pleased with the training. Not only have I succeeded in meeting my goals, I also managed to prove to others that it is never too late to educate yourself. Obviously, the NVQ certificate also helped me acquire new knowledge which I was immediately able to use in my work process. Earning the certificate has brought me a promotion and greater responsibility in the workplace.
Most craftsmen learn their skills from their parents, relatives and loved ones, but they do not obtain a valid document proving that they truly master their particular craft. The NVQ certificate that an individual can obtain is therefore of great importance to the individual, as well as to the potential employer. The NVQ enables craftsmen to acquire a formal profession, which contributes to employment and preservation of cultural heritage. We are aware that professions in the field of cultural heritage can be particularly challenging as they often represent a way of life, yet they are fully equivalent to all other professions.
