Os significados da educação superior, do trabalho e da transição da educação superior para o trabalho

André Monteiro, Paulo Jorge Santos, Carlos Gonçalves

Resumo


Num tempo de incerteza e precarização do trabalho, este estudo tenta compreender como os estudantes do ensino superior constroem significados sobre a educação superior, o trabalho, a transição da educação para o trabalho e como estes se relacionam entre si. Com uma amostra de 986 estudantes do Ensino Superior português visa-se compreender as relações e mediações das dimensões dos significados da educação superior com as dimensões dos significados da transição da educação superior para o trabalho e as dimensões dos significados do trabalho. A dimensão Afirmação Profissional é mediadora da relação entre o Desenvolvimento Pessoal e Social e a Dimensão Pessoal e Social do Trabalho. Com base na análise dos resultados algumas pistas de intervenção são apresentadas.

Palavras-chave
