About a career week

A career week is a cycle of events, during which young people have the opportunity to explore possible future activities, to listen to representatives of different professions and to receive career advice. In addition to central events throughout Latvia, various other activities related to the choice of professions will also be held during the course of his career in general and vocational education institutions. This year's career week is dedicated to the introduction of information and communication technologies (ICT). In view of the epidemiological situation in the country, most of the measures will be online, while part of the measures within a single class or one team will take place on the spot, taking into account the recommendations of the epidemiologists and the instructions of the responsible authorities. 

In the course of his career, VIAA implements “career support in general and vocational education institutions” under the European Social Fund and State funding.
