FARIA, Luísa; RURATO, Paulo  and  SANTOS, Nelson Lima. Papel do auto-conceito de competência cognitiva e da auto-aprendizagem no contexto sócio-laboral . Aná. Psicológica [online]. 2000, vol.18, n.2, pp.203-219. ISSN 0870-8231.

This work aims to study the self-learning competence in socio-labour context, and to discuss its relation with Adult Education and Training, as well as with related variables, namely with intellectual self-concept as a support for the development of autonomy and responsibility towards learning. In order to pursue such aims, we developed an empirical study in the context of a Company from Northern Portugal, with a sample of 503 workers, with different characteristics. The results of correlational studies show that a better self-learning competence is related to a more positive intellectual self-concept as a promoter of active learning. The results of the differential studies confirmed two of our hypotheses, that anticipated different manifestations of intellectual self-concept and of self-learning, as a function of individual, organisational and socio-organisational variables, that are discussed considering a new conception of training focus on learning and on the development of workers-learners autonomy, responsibility and efficiency.

Keywords : Self-learning; competence self-concept; adult education; training.
