Les mondes de l'apprentissage, entre qualité du travail, temporalités et autonomie chez les apprentis en CAP

Abstract : The apprenticeship contract is a pathway to professionalization for young people from the age of 16 which tends to develop, but who faces a high rate of breaks in contracts. To understand the reasons, an ergonomic diagnosis was conducted on the basis of observations in companies and within an Apprentice Training Center (ATC), and interviews with apprentices and professionals (institutional bodies, teachers, Apprentice Instructors: AI). The results highlight three families of situations in which there are differences of logic between the company’s world and the ATC’s world: quality and the criteria of a well done job, paradoxical temporalities, and apprentices’ autonomy. Learning appears as a compartmentalized system in which these gaps are neither analyzed nor debated between the different worlds. The apprentice is the only carrier of the contradictions, and the trade-offs he/she implements can sometimes be limited or demanding, leading to school drop-outs. Establishing "inter-world" spaces in which the contradictions experienced by apprentices in the workplace are debated would both prevent breach of contract and develop an enabling learning environment.
