Expectativas sobre un trabajo futuro y vocaciones científicas en estudiantes de educación secundaria


This study features a diagnosis on the expectations and priorities of secondary education students relative to their working future in the Balearic Islands (Spain), by means of a questionnaire which appraises the importance of several features of a job. Features like helping others (of major importance for girls) and creativity (of major importance for boys) are the most appraised by young people, while craftsmanship (radically rejected by girls) and environmental aspects are considered of less importance. According to the questionnaire's factors structure, the self–updating related aspects have major importance, while the manual dimension is the least important. Debate of these results appeals directly to school science, while as long as the improvement and attention of job expectations defy education and science teaching in school, mainly for the development of science vocations.

    ABSTRACT: After analyzing a 2005 survey in Spain, of educational training on the transition and integration into the labor market, we selected variables, and identified a few cases of social identity in a broad sense. The meaning given to the work and its priorities, the selection of targets to achieve this, future aspirations, and parents qualifications are some of the variables studied. The origin of speech is not individual, reveals a socio-historical position, taking as reference the interaction and conflict between different social groups. This article analyzes the human and social capital of vocational training in Barcelona. We intend to discuss this analysis and show how the professional cycles in Barcelona are characterized between classes and modes of social reproduction. (C) 2012 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
