Abstract [en]

Research topic: The overall purpose of this longitudinal research project is to study professional trajectories in the first intake of students which graduated 2014 from the newly reformed teacher education with specialization towards work in the leisure-time center. The main objective for these students is both to work in the leisure time center’s traditional activities, and to work as a teacher in a school subject. This project aims to gain knowledge about which professional trajectories that are possible for this new category of teachers. When are their skills asked for? How do they construct their professional identities? Theoretical and Methodology framework: Border theories and theories of identity constructions are used as theoretical foundations in this research. Such theories provide tools for studying how social borders are established and maintained, and how professional identities are constructed by considering themselves in the light of others. In addition occupation theories are used. In attempting to describe and explain the teachers' movements within the profession, the term breakpoints is used to study how movements across borders in an education system affects the choices made. 40 newly graduated teachers are included in the project, and the methods used are recurring surveys and interviews when they enter the labor market and during their first five years of employment. Main findings: The first survey, answered by the students prior to their graduation, highlights how the students anticipate entering a hybrid profession, and by this facing new dilemmas. They are entering a new and dual professional role where a balance must be maintained between two assignments. To be able to do this balancing, to cross professional borders and to find enough time to combine the assignments, is considered to be the big challenge. In addition, they see a challenge in defining their new profession in the light of the old. The second survey focused on mapping which career trajectories the students took during their first year on the labor market, and is now undergoing analysis. Relevance for Nordic Educational Research: This study puts the spotlight on the Swedish teacher education which is quite unique in a Nordic perspective
