Internship contracts, professional training and employment: contracts and portraits

João Zenha Martins


Professional training; internship contracts; no temporary needs; public contributions; costs of labour employment; employability.


The text concerns the history and importance of the professional training in the socio-political context which enhances the concept of employability. Nevertheless, is possible to see that the global system of the professional learning is fragmented which allows to have space for a low rigorous use of it. Due to the implicit low costs and the susceptibility of satisfaction of the no temporary business needs, the different types of internships’ contracts tend to work as an alternative to the labour contractual system.
