Formations professionnelles et production des compétences et des qualifications dans le secteur de l'artisanat à Marrakech

Abstract : The constitution of skills in the handcraft sector is at the forefront of the confrontation between modern and traditional forms of productive organisation. Using the “convention economics”, this thesis focuses on vocational training that is acquired on the job, by structured, public and private, scholastic and alternate training. Going from the historical position of handcraft in Marrakech society, from the traditional view of vocational professions as scholastic failure; the first part of the thesis accounts for the different regimes of public action in term of qualifications: domestic, professional, industrial and merchant. The second part of my thesis uses an original survey of 150 master craftsmen and workers of the sewing and hairdressing professions. The data analysis permits to distinguish between different typologies: concerning the education choice and hiring of master craftsmen, concerning the workers' choice of the training modality as well as their appreciation of the content of vocational training, and finally concerning the productive configurations resulting from the stratification between workers and master craftsmen. As well as the distinction between traditional and modern, the predominant domestic convention can be associated with other conventional modalities of skills' management. A professional convention, highly related to structured training can be combined with merchant or domestic regulations. These divers compositions show that many forms of modernity are capable of being developed, thus questioning the public action in term of its role in the production of skills and qualifications in handcraft sector.
