Analyse de la formation d'une profession : processus et éléments de reproduction : l'exemple des opérateurs de l'emploi

Abstract : This thesis proposes a framework for analysing the training of public employment agency staff in two institutions --ANPE and Missions Locales. There are many questions which arise concerning agency staff, their role and the development of their practices, given the context of changing conditions which affect employment and the labour market more generally. The key question is to understand the stabiblity and the training of this occupational group during the 20th century and to explain its development during that period. This occupational group is treated as an historic and daily construction of the individual and collective actors. The thesis attempts to identify the elements which create stabiblity and the processes which produce its construction/deconstruction/reconstruction. In trying to understand the changes which affect this group, and to study the question of their professionalisation, we show that the construction of their occupation results from the confrontation of three logics. The first is institutional. A comparison of both institutions allows us to show that the institutionalisation of this occupational group is dtermined by state dynamics, or by local initiatives. The second logic is collective and has its origins in individual, and returns to the professional practice of the councillors. We highlight three segments of the occupation, during the 1990s. Our research allows us to use Strauss's (1992) model to study the councillors of ANPE together with the councillors of Missions Locales in spite of their different goals, their opposite logics, and the diversity of their personal characteristics.
