Education check for qualified employees

With an Education check, you make sure that (potential) employees have the right experience to perform their work correctly. This is important because in some sectors it is obliged by law to employ qualified employees.

Validata checks the diploma at the highest level of education. Training and course certificates cannot be verified.

Diploma verificatie

Diploma register: direct access through DUO

Checking the authenticity and validity of a diploma requires more than just a copy, supplied by the (potential) employee. Validata has a partnership with data supplier Dienst Uitvoering Onderwijs (DUO). This executive institute of the Dutch government oversees and checks diplomas obtained at Dutch educational institutions in a central diploma register.

Dienst Uitvoering Onderwijs

Education check through our professional data supplier

The advantage of our partnership with DUO is the direct contact so that diplomas can be checked rapidly. This contributes to a shorter processing time for the complete employment screening. In addition, the security of personal data can be guaranteed continuously by working together with professional data suppliers.

If a diploma does not appear in the DUO diploma register, Validata will contact the respective educational institution.

International diploma and Dutch equivalent

Lastly, Nuffic and Qualification Check identifies the Dutch equivalent to which the international diploma can be compared. For example, a university or bachelor’s degree. As there are no senior secondary vocational education courses (MBO) outside of the Netherlands, there is no  appropriate comparison to be made.

An additional charge applies for verifying an international diploma. You will receive this invoice as soon as Validata has requested the verification from Nuffic. The average processing time is ten working days.
