TEACHER EDUCATION: WHICH PLACE DOES IT HAVE IN TEACHER INSERTION IN TECHNICAL SCHOOLS IN THE HEALTH FIELD?
Keywords:Higher secondary technical professional education, teacher education, health
Introduction: The higher secondary technical professional education (EPTNM) is really present in the health field, considering the great number of technical workers. Nevertheless, there are weak policies regarding teacher education. Objectives: 1. Analyze which the selection criteria and methods are, regarding the education requirements as teachers; 2. Connect teacher education to some aspects of the conditions of work. Methodology: study with dialectical and historical approach, involving document and field research. Ten (10) schools which offer technical courses in the field of health in São Paulo state took part in the study. Five (5) of these schools are public ones and the others are private, and they include branches of the ETECs - Centro Paula Souza, ETSUS, SENAC and other private schools, not only in the capital, but also in the countryside of the state. The analysis of the course plans, online questionnaires and semi-structured interviews with teachers were carried out. Conclusions: although the majority of the course plans and the managers indicated, primarily, the selection of teachers with a degree, special programs or other forms of pedagogical training, there is always a dubious, uncertain and extremely flexible aspect. The relaxed and undermined education for the teaching in the EPTNM contributes to the naturalization and the reinforcement of the aspects which converges to the deterioration of work, which needs to be contextualized, historically, in the relationships between the education and the wider processes of reproduction of the capitalist society currently marked by the neoliberal ideology.
