This article, generated from our participation in the Social Pedagogy Post-Graduate Course at São Paulo University (Brazil), aims to analyze the teachers’ training program developed by Senac (a professional education institution present throughout Brazil) for its educators who, according to SINASE – Brazilian National Socio-Educational Assistance System, work in vocational education with minors offenders at Fundação Casa (São Paulo State institution for minors undergoing socio-educational measures). The educational action developed by Senac at Fundação Casa began in 2015 and continues today, having attended 81.270 students between 2015 and 2022. During this period, 359 Senac educators participated in the teacher training course called Socio-Educational Training, analyzed in this article. Based on the work of Paulo Freire, Roberto da Silva, Hans-Uwe Otto and Jorge Camors regarding the epistemological bases of social pedagogy and practices characterized as social education actions, we intend, through this investigation, to consolidate a critical view of the formative process, focusing on the following question: to what extent does the training promoted by Senac for these teachers subsidize their performance as social educators? Based on bibliographical research centered on the referenced authors’ work, as well as through the analysis of documents generated in the development of the formative action and by participant observation, the referred course was studied with a focus on its formative objectives and on its learning situations, resulting in the identification of elements (educational visions, pedagogical practices) that enable the teaching performance from the perspective of social educators. Keywords: Social Education. Socio-Educational Measure. Teacher Training.
