Good education for a good working culture

Research published that seeks to define the contours of the relationship between training, skills and professional culture

  

Which is the best school to prepare for work? And what (vocational) training can best introduce young people to the company? Education, training, work; but also school and enterprise, entrepreneurship as a vocation or as training. Important themes, which have not just been chasing each other since today and are constantly contaminating each other. Themes that, by the way, can change depending on the social systems in which they are declined.

It is around all this that Robert Messanh Amavi (CIRNEF, Normandy University, Normandy, France) reasoned in his paper ‘The Interactions Between “Business” Culture, “Professional” Culture and Training’ recently published in Sociology Study.

The author takes one consideration as the basis of his investigation: the fundamental questions of the educational sciences always remain economic and social. Having said that, Amavi emphasises how the interactions between ‘business’ culture, ‘professional’ culture and education are part of this set of problems and how it is necessary, in order to better understand them, to go ‘out into the field’ to see how they really unfold. Therefore, Amavi specifies that his reflection is based on empirical research (on the medical professions which, however, provides elements that can be generalised to other sectors) that provided the material on which to try to construct a theoretical interpretation of the observed reality.

Amavi then begins to reason about the relationship between job culture and professional culture and then comes to the question of what is most ‘desirable’ in order to activate an effective and productive professional culture training. This step is a prelude to a deeper understanding of the interactions between ‘professional practice’ and ‘professional culture’ and thus of the necessary traits that each person must acquire in order to find a proper place in the world of work.

Amavi concludes with an observation: there is a kind of virtuous triangle between training, skills and work that benefits from constant positive cues and needs to be cultivated and developed.
