Typology of work experience: Analysis of the workplace training process in Quebec
For the past four years we have been researching the cooperative effort between schools and businesses with regard to workplace training. Our work is focused on an analysis of vocational study programs offered either in the form of alternance training or with training periods in the school and in work environment. The purpose of this study is to analyze the principal aspects of vocational training within the company in order to identify the difficulties and efficiency conditions involved in cooperative efforts between vocational education schools and private firms. This with a view to contributing to improving the quality of such training. Considering the "Typology of Work Experience" (Guile and Griffiths, 2001) as likely to contribute to the value of our analysis, we will attempt to make use of this typology to interpret the workplace training processes observed within four vocational education and training programs. Towards this end, we will examine the perceptions of students, teachers and company mentors involved in the programs under study.
