The practice enterprise concept application was born after a careful analysis to the impact of the training and education offer on the job world. Such analysis has brought results that have put in evidence the inadequacy of the qualifications towards the demands of the firms owed to the lack of practical ability, to the insufficient knowledge of the business environment, to difficulty to work in team, to the scarce application of organizational behaviours, needing a long period of working insertion accordingly with increase of the costs to load of the enterprise.
The classical model of training foresees first a theoretical-practical period within the training structure and after an apprenticeship period in a real enterprise. As an answer to the gap found in phase of analysis it was undertaken the practice firm methodology, the reproduction of real situations of job, and particularly discipline: schedule, relationships, situations of job, development of the offices, team work.
