We analyze the challenges that are presented to the teachers of the institutions of the Federal Network of Professional, Scientific and Technological Education (RFEPCT), professionals of the Federal Public Ministry of the Basic, Technical and Technological Education Career (EBTT Career). From historicization, a study of the legal milestones regarding the career of EBTT teachers was carried out since the restructuring of the EPT offer in Brazil in 2008. In the study, the data produced from the Higher Education Census allowed a visualization, in form of graphics, referring to the quantity and training of teachers who make up the RFEPCT from 2009 to 2018. In addition, questionnaires were applied to academics from six classes in a bachelor’s degree program and two classes from the Graduate Program. This article, then, is the result of the production and analysis of the data, guided by the analysis of the movements of studies, a technique that considers the discourse as materiality. The analyzes indicated that teachers are subject to guidelines, principles, and values, guided by productivity, efficiency, and theoretical and methodological rationality. Therefore, the professional valorization of the EBTT Career teachers is related to the precepts of the market, which demand certain skills and competences in carrying out the pedagogical work in the school institution.
