FALEIROS, Nayara de Paula  and  LEHMAN, Yvette Piha. Challenges in the implementation of career education in the Brazilian educational context. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2016, vol.17, n.2, pp. 233-243. ISSN 1679-3390.

Despite having emerged in the United States in the 1970s, Career Education in Brazilian schools is still an unknown approach. The objective of this article is to present partial results of a research developed in a technical school in São Paulo, which sought to evaluate the feasibility of implementing a Career Education proposal based on the additive strategy: weekly classes were integrated in the regular schedule of the first year of high school students. It was stated that these classes provided an important space for reflection for the students, besides concretely demonstrating, that it is possible to institute a Career Education proposal in the school in a systematized way, even if there is no legal obligation.

Keywords : career education; career counseling; technical education; curriculum; ethnography.
