THE CHALLENGES FOR TEACHER EDUCATION: THE CONCEPT OF COMPETENCES IN PROFESSIONAL AND TECHNOLOGICAL EDUCATION
Keywords:competences, vocational education, teacher education
This integrative literature review addressed two relevant themes for vocational education (VA): the logic of competences and the current policy of Brazilian teacher education. The objective was to know and characterize the concept of competences, in order to contribute to new investigations, debates and reflections on the theme linked to teacher training at VA. The methodology is based on a qualitative research, through an integrative literature review. The results showed that in the last 21 (twenty-one) years, 23 (twenty-three) documents were selected, which relate the discussions on the competences in teacher education related to EFA remained present, even if inconstant over the years. It is notable that a significant number of authors sought to deepen this issue, while a smaller percentage reproduced the content of Brazilian legislation on education and the proposals for documents from international organizations, without a critical analysis. Therefore, competencies are a reality that will probably not be easily overcome and must be accompanied by scientific knowledge that promotes culture, work, science, philosophy and critical thinking, by those teachers who want to make a difference, even with all the limitations of teaching structures.
