CBSE Announces “Skill Expo and Guidance Festival – 2023”
CBSE Latest Circular: On the occasion of India’s 77th Independence Day, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) proudly unveiled its upcoming CBSESkill Expo and Guidance Festival – 2023. As part of its ongoing mission to highlight the significance of skill development in young minds, CBSE aims to host this landmark event which combines two of its past initiatives.
A Look into the Past CBSE Skill Expo cum Awareness Workshops
Last year, CBSE took the initiative to organize Skill Expo cum Awareness Workshops in various cities, namely Panipat in Haryana and Agra & Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh. The primary motive behind this was to shed light on skill courses to the Principals and Teachers of CBSE affiliated schools.
Not just that, CBSE collaborated with Lifology Foundation to present a National Guidance Festival digitally. Held in September 2022, this event aimed at assisting students and parents from classes VIII to XII.
They received insights about future career trajectories, necessary skill sets, and strategies to achieve their professional aspirations.

With the overwhelming success of the past events, CBSE intends to blend the Skill Expo and National Guidance Festival into one grand spectacle. This CBSE initiative will kick off with regional events across all board regions, culminating in a national-level extravaganza.
