ENAMAT is the institution to which the Federal Constitution by Amendment No. 45/2004, assigned the duty to organize the formation of magistrates and performs its function in three main areas: initial formation, continuing formation and formation of educators.
Initial Formation is the stage of professional education of judges, destined to substitute district labour court judges. It begins immediately after the judge has been appointed with the National Module, held in Brasilia, at the headquarters of ENAMAT, and is succeeded by the Regional Module, taught in the Judicial School of the respective Regional Labour Court.
On the other hand, the Continuing Formation reaches all labour judges, including substitute district labour court judges, district labour court judges and regional labour court judges. At this stage, the professional skills already acquired in the Initial Formation are developed and improved, but also new skills for specific issues are introduced. Continuing Formation can be held in three different modalities: in-class, blended or distance education, being promoted by ENAMAT or Judicial Schools.
The formation of educators aims at qualifying educational professionals. This action requires specialized professionals in techniques and teaching-learning tools for the reality of the labour magistrate. Examples of professionals who ENAMAT prepare are: instructors or teachers for in-class and distance education methods, managers of judicial schools and courseware writers, in order to teach their courses, also placing these professionals available to the Regional Labour Courts Schools.
