The theme at the center of the article concerns the relationship between training and work and, consequently, a renewal of the meaning of professional epistemology within the teaching courses of the pedagogical area. The main research question is inherent in how to investigate and construct an epistemology for the educational and training professions. The adoption of the TECO-D matrix is proposed for educational-training skills, highlighting its application to the training offer proposed by the CdS LM 57 & 85 of the University of Florence.
The matrix is investigated through the application to the SUA form, offering demonstration of the relationship between the definition of a professional epistemology and skills to be used for educational and training professions.
