Travailler dans l'automobile. Le rôle de la formation continue en France, en Argentine et au Brésil (1980-2004)

Abstract : From the case of the automotive industry, more precisely three assembly plants in France, Argentine and Brazil, this research enlightens the modalities of the implementation of training policies and practices and its effects. The stakes of the training of workers emphasize its economic function. They aim at the development of staff skills and performances and its adaptation to technological and organizational transformations. However, training in the company is marked by the workers' history, the latter having to face a reorganization of work, the time when these transformations occur and the concrete situation of the company. Therefore, training cannot be thought without taking all these contextual elements into account. In an automotive company which is established in several countries, this context is transnational as well as national. This raises the following thesis: Training does not play a role which is a priori defined by the objective it is supposed to respond to, it fulfils other functions. Companies implement training without always being able to determine the economic advantages they get from it. The same goes for technological changes. Working situations which underlie these changes are also training situations and thus are not linked to established trainings. The functions of training vary with the contexts: the national laws which rule a professional training system for employed adults are the base which assures them of benefiting from internships in order to improve their situation.
