Self-efficacy and Views about Work and Training: Report on a Current Pilot Study in Ontario (1998)

This is the report of a small research project initiated at the University of Ottawa in 1988. The research examines the relationships between the attitudes of young Canadians soon to enter the workforce and their educational/training 'settings'.

Variables which were of interest included:
(1) the young person's attitude towards training for new technology
(2) economic locus of control - the application of the locus of control concept to economic behaviour
(3) self efficacy - measuring belief in one's ability to perform successfully: expectation of personal mastery and success, and
(4) self-estrangement - the psychological component of alienation.

The research is intended to make an initial exploration of relationships between those four psychological constructs and the young person's type of educational/training setting, age, sex and length of time in programme.
