William Maximiliano Carvalho de Melo, Fernando de Souza Coelho

Resumo


After the Brazilian redemocratization in 1986, the legislative institutions began a changing process derived from the assimilation of new constitutional competencies and the increasing pressure of interest groups in the development of a broad scope of public policies. The need to prepare a new legislative bureaucracy to deal with a panoply of new themes led to the creation of training centers. They began to be consolidated in broader models of corporate education, such as the Training Center from the Chamber of Deputies (CEFOR) and the Brazilian Legislative Institute (ILB) from the Federal Senate. These initial models influenced the development and diffusion of professional training policies to other legislative organizations. This paper presents an analysis of the corporate education trajectory in the National Congress to explore ‘how have professional training policies been developed in the Federal Legislative Branch?’Institutional documents, interviews, and political speeches were used as data sources to analyze the two organizations paths. As its outcome, the paper synthesizes some historical elements of the vocational training policy in both legislative organizations. In short, it contributes to encourage a research agenda in the cross area of public administration and corporate education, in the peculiar context of the Legislative Branch.
