Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The National Agency for Qualification and Professional Education (ANQEP I.P.) considers extremely important and necessary for Portugal to have a System of Anticipation of Qualification Needs (SANQ), which appears as the great source of information for the characterization of the territories in terms of forecast short and medium term qualification needs and for the updating of the National Qualification Catalogue (CNQ). The present study aims to analyse, on the one hand, the methodological approach on which the development of SANQ was based and, on the other hand, to understand how the expected partnership between CIM Alto Minho, municipalities and operators worked out. This study should also elucidates us about the role of the different structures that interview in the whole process of organization of the educational and training supply network from the macro level, ANQEP I.P. and General Direction of School Establishments (DGEstE), at meso level, CIM Alto Minho and Direction of Regional Services of the North (DSRN), and finally at the micro level, where we consider municipalities, schools and where the economic and the business tissue of the region is implemented, approaching the decisive role they play in this whole process of "haggling"and negotiation of this network, paying attention to their own interests. This study is part of a research methodology of qualitative nature, presenting itself as an instrumental case study, validated by the triangulation of data sources, subjects and by methodological triangulation. Data collected and analysed in this study allow us to conclude that most of the participants in the process of defining the training supply network recognize that the methodology that supports SANQ results to CIM Alto Minho did not produce valid results for the region and, towards this observation, we consider that all subsequent work defining criteria for network construction and the relevance assigned to qualifications for the region is weakened.On the other hand, the collection of data and the analysis that has been carried out, allow us to conclude that we are witnessing a process of concertation of a network of fictitious formative supply, marked by the logic of staging and organized hypocrisy by Brunsson (2006).
