Training and employment

The objective of this investigation is to analyze the relationship between training and employment, questioning the affirmation that more training is equivalent to more and better employment.
The social representation of training as a strong factor in obtaining a job is today very much extended among workers, employers and among people in general and is also assumed by the Administration and the Unions. This research intends to examine critically this social representation.
