Explain what is meant by socialisation

Socialisation is the process of learning a particular cultures norms and values. There are two types of socialisation; primary and secondary socialisation. 

Primary socialisation takes place at home and in school. This can include manners, what is right and wrong and even walking and talking. It can be said that primary education gets us ready for the adult world. 

Secondary socialisation occurs in adulthood. It takes place outside of the home and whilst in work or in public. This builds on a person’s primary socialisation and enables them to live in society. Examples of secondary socialisation includes how to behave at work and public and interact with colleagues. Secondary socialisation is taught through people such as celebrities, managers and friends.
