The Bihar Education Project Council (BEPC) and UNICEF jointly provide online career counselling sessions to help the students, who have taken Class 10 and 12 exams.
At present, most students are in a dilemma on how to choose the best career path after passing the board exam. Nationwide, online counseling courses are very useful to students when all educational institutions and other counselling centers are closed due to the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19). The course will start on YouTube on April 9.
BEPC State programme officer Kiran Singh said that it will be a one-hour live counselling session that will be available every Thursdays at 4 PM from April 9 to May 7.
The BEPC has proposed five sessions to apprise the students about multiple career options they can choose after board exams. “The experts will offer advise to students based on their inclination. Students can join the live session free of cost. Experts will speak on several traditional and vocational courses and elaborate on their scopes,” she said.
With the help of the comment box, students can also ask their queries which will be answered at the end of the session, she added.
As per the schedule released by BEPC, the topics included are career portal orientation, what after school, vocational/ diploma oriented careers and its scope, career options in education and teaching and career options in medical.
The students will also be informed about multiple scholarships so that they can financially support their education.
