Issue Use of implicit competences
Outline Self-management of implicit knowledge and use of implicit competences have been analysed in a case study focusing on a Portuguese woman who wants to return to work. 
  • This case reveals the role of social structures and economic status in individual progression. 
  • The analysis distinguishes between implicit learning and learning from experience: there must be something which fits between implicit learning/knowledge and the person so that the person can recognise and use the implicit knowledge.
  • The case study exemplifies that learning starts out from life context and not only from work.
  • Women tend to be more occupied with life competences while men concentrate on work competences. Women can now capitalise on learning intensive work.
