What do refugees think about validation and recognition of their prior learning?
“These documents are my securities. They show that I am a good person who has studied, and a person who wants to work and contribute to the society. You need to have an evidence of that, and these documents are my evidence.”
“I had my competences recognized for the education and I felt as if a path appeared for me, and a light was turned on. Now, I could make a living”.
“It was surprising for me to realize the relevance of all my work for the field of this study”.
“My greatest hope for the future is to be well integrated into the Norwegian society. I owe Norway so much for choosing me as a quota refugee. When you receive an opportunity like the one we have received, you have to show that you are able to work hard and do your best.“
