ANALYSIS OF THE SOCIAL SKILLS OF THE VOCATIONAL TRAINING STUDENTS FOR THE WORK INTERVIEW

 

ABSTRACT

 

This study involved 100 students in total, enrolled on intermediate and advanced vocational education from Ceuta. A group of 86 women and 14 men, with between 16 and 55 years old. It was used a descriptive and cross-sectional design. For data recollection, the students had to answer a questionnaire divided in two parts. The first part consisted on a series of questions related to sociodemographic items to define the students and their environment profile. To diagnose and analyse the social skills, it was used the Socio-personal Factor Test for Work Insertion: an Instrument for Evaluation and Training designed by Martínez- Rodríguez y Carmona (2010).

 

As a conclusion, the results show that women study more than men in vocational education. The social skills needed for employment are more developed in women than in men, they are more aware of the social skills they have developed and their deficits, being the cooperation and empathy as the social skills more important to get an employment, but finding both genders limited in leadership skills. Both genders estimate that entrepreneurs demand skills such as cooperation and responsibility.
