LAUDARES, João Bosco  and  TOMASI, Antônio. The secondary school technician in the productive sector: his new place and competences. Educ. Soc. [online]. 2003, vol.24, n.85, pp.1237-1256. ISSN 1678-4626.

The recent agreements between the Professional Training Centers (at high-school levels) and large industries suggest a new position is given to these professionals in the production structure. Their intermediate position between workers and engineers or between "the factory floor" and the "planning department", typical of taylorism, tends to disappear from the horizontal management of the new organizational models. This leads them to need higher levels of qualification, closer to those of engineers, which is proved by the increasing demand of technologists, professionals of superior level, in the productive sector. Drawing on Sociology of Work and its notions of qualification, competence and knowledge, we seek to identify the tendencies of professional mobility of both technicians and technologists in large industries.

Keywords : Technician; Technologist; Qualification.
