Abstract [sv]

Omfattande litteratur pekar på lärares arbete och dess ökade arbetsbelastning och stress. Lärare känner att de får mer administrativa uppgifter och mindre undervisningstid, detta upplever lärare påverka elevernas undervisning negativt. Lärare förväntas ta på sig ansvar och roller de tidigare inte haft. Studien genomfördes på ett större privatägt företag som bedrivervuxenutbildning. En fokuserad gruppintervju, med fem lärare, samt en kvalitativ intervju, med en lärare, användes som metod för datainsamling. Lärarna hade sin arbetstid fördelad till20 timmar undervisning och 20 timmar administration varje vecka. Analysen av materialetvisade att lärarna upplevde en hög arbetsbelastning. Lärarnas arbetsbelastning kundekategoriseras till fyra huvudkategorier och tolv subkategorier, där elever, personal, administration och ledningen utgjorde huvudkategorierna. Lärarna upplevde att de hade förstora och för många grupper med elever, att rutinerna för nya elever som kom in i verksamheten hade negativ inverkan på utbildningen. Lärarna upplevde att elevtid utanförundervisningen samt individuell elevplanering och progressionssamtal tog upp mycket mer tid än det var planerat för. Den höga personalomsättningen och antalet sjukskrivningar gjorde att lärarna upplevde en högre arbetsbelastning. Det administrativa arbetet med närvarolistor, flytt av elever mellan grupper samt föråldrade digitala verktyg gjorde att arbetet var omständigt och svårt vilket påverkade lärarnas arbetsbelastning. Lärarna upplevde att ledningen brast i planeringen, att ledningen hade för stort fokus på ekonomi samt kommunikationssvårigheter.

Abstract [en]

Extensive literature points to teachers' work and its increased workload and stress. Teachers feel that they get more administrative tasks and less teaching time. The teachers experience the administrative tasks are affecting the students education negatively. Teachers are expected to take responsibility and roles they previously did not have. The study was conducted at a larger privately-owned company engaged in adult education. A focused group interview, with five teachers, as well as a qualitative interview, with a teacher, was used as a method of data collection. The teachers had their working hours divided into 20 hours of teaching and 20hours of administration each week. The analysis of the material showed an experience of high workload for the teachers. The teachers' workload could be categorized into four main categories and twelve subcategories, where students, staff, administration and management were the main categories. The teachers felt that they had too large and too many groups of students, that the routines for new students who entered the business had a negative impact on the education. Teachers perceived that student time outside the classroom as well as individual student planning and progression discussions took up much more time than planned. The high staff turnover and the number of sick leaves led to the teachers experiencing a higher workload. The administrative work with attendance lists, moving students between groups as well as outdated digital tools made work difficult, which affected teachers' workload. Teachers experienced a lack of planning and communication from the management and that management had too much focus on finance.
