NETEC – Center for Studies on Work and Education

Research Group on Work, Education and Educational Policy (GTEPE)

Leader: Prof André Silva Martins

GTEPE aims to produce knowledge for a critical understanding of educational reality, emphasizing, therefore, the analysis of educational projects of business groups and of educational policies. The group seeks to identify the meaning and the political-ideological implications of such constructs for public education. The group’s research is grounded in dialectical historical materialism.



GETEMHI – Study Group on Work, Physical Education and Historical Materialism

Leaders: Prof Hajime Takeuchi Nozaki  | Prof Álvaro de Azeredo Quelhas

The group aims to contribute with researches and publications in the field of work and education, having historical materialism as a central theoretical reference. GETEMHI focuses its attention on the theme of Teaching Work, choosing as object of study the Work of the Physical Education Teacher. The intention is to analyze the teaching work both in and out of the the school field, trying to evaluate their
concrete relationships, taking as an area of analysis the changes in the world of work and not the labor market, as the apologetic visions in this sector of research usually work.
