The idea that the long-life and long-life learning are preparatory to the civic-political, economic and social development of the present society of knowledge, is now a fact. Nevertheless, in the educational process, today, complaints are still heard about an insufficient ability to interpret the change, to design training programs which can affect the civic education, the sustainable development and the welfare of an area. All that requires a managerial education, based on a hermeneutic-educational paradigm, to optimize the management of public and private educational institutions to capitalize on human resources and to direct them to the acquisition of civic-social skills to use long-life in order to promote social awareness and civic competence. This managerial training will formalize real laboratories of civic-mindedness in public and private educational institutions, it will raise the awareness of cooperative learning, it will activate some practices of responsible citizenship and will urge the civic consciousness in the European dimension. In this epistemological and practical-operative frame a research project has been structured from a few months, which has been aimed at analyzing the most common models of managerial training in public and private organizations focused on the recovery and the integration of disadvantaged people in the town of Taranto, which isliving moments of deep economic crisis with alarming social implications. We will pass from the field-study to the formalization of a hermeneutic paradigm of educational management training, which will be interpreter and promoter of the change
