Abstract

Lately, economic and demographic tendencies and technological progress are

unrecognizably changing the whole working world structure. Social changes, appearing in

the globalization process, raise new requirements for a man in his career path. In Lithuania,

in the legislation acts on education since 2011, a modern career education understanding has

also been asserted and developed. Career education in the current situation is becoming a

continuous process, which starts in lower secondary schools, is simultaneously carried on in

educational support institutions, continued in vocational education institutions and higher

schools, later moves into lifelong learning space. In this process, a person acquires career

planning and its management abilities, helping him to create and realize career plans

compatible with his personality peculiarities, to accumulate necessary knowledge, skills and

attitudes for the realization of them, abilities to flexibly react to society and labour market

changes, successfully make proper career- related decisions, acquire lifelong learning

motivation. In Lithuanian context, vocational consultation, information and career education

is considered to be one of the most important factors, encouraging employment, working

force adaptation to market conditions, entrepreneurship and equal possibilities. Therefore,

effectively provided career education services become important both for education system

and labour market and for their interaction. For this purpose, career education system has

been created in Lithuania, which consists of legal basis, career education specialists, career

education service coordination, provision, financing and observation mechanisms. The aim

of this system is to help people consciously choose education and employment opportunities

suitable for them, create conditions for career competence acquisition. Career education

becomes an important teaching and employment policy element at all levels, a constituent

policy part of active labour market.
