FILGUEIRAS, Cristina Almeida Cunha. Local actors in the implementation of the policy of professional qualification. Serv. Soc. Soc. [online]. 2011, n.107, pp. 438-460. ISSN 0101-6628. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-66282011000300004.
The article discusses the implementation at the local level of professional qualification programs for urban workers. The provision of training courses has broadened since 2007 in Brazil due to diversification of programs and connection with investment programmes on infrastructure, social assistance programs, cash-transfer, solidarity economy, fostering entrepreneurship and insertion of young people. The text discusses the work of actors such as prefectures, executing entities, agencies of the national system of employment and employment committees.
