CBSE organized Skill Expo cum Awareness Workshops on Skill Courses for the Principalsand Teachers of CBSE affiliated schools, at Panipat (Haryana), Agra and Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) in the year of 2022 to create awareness for skills along with recognizing the importance of skills.

In addition, CBSE in association with Lifology Foundation, organized National Guidance Festival for students & parents of class VIII-XII in the month of September 2022 in digital mode to provide information on future careers, skillsets to excel and a clear plan regarding ‘Which career paths to choose and How to reach the destination’. The event was a great success in meeting its objectives towards creating awareness about different career paths to the students.

Also, NEP 2020 has emphasized the importance of scientific guidance for children at schools. The real question is ‘How to decide What to become in Future’ This decision becomes tough and complex in the current scenario where a lot of changes are happeningin the world of careers which signifies the role of scientific Career and Skill Guidance at school.

In this context, CBSE intends to integrate both these events i.e., Skill Expo and National Guidance Festival into Skill Expo and National Guidance Festival – 2023 with a view to organize regional events comprising all regions of the Board leading to the National level event with an aim to encourage the creativity, innovate and also to foster peer learning of students, teachers and principals alike.
