A work organized with great amount of liberty : A qualitative study of school counsellors work with newly arrived immigrant students. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka skolkuratorers upplevelse av arbetet med nyanlända elever inom skolans organisation. Fem skolkuratorer som arbetar i en kommun med många nyanlända elever intervjuades i en kvalitativ undersökning genom en fokusgruppsdiskussion. Resultatet har analyserats med hjälp av organisationsteori och har jämförts med tidigare forskning. Resultatet visade att skolkuratorerna i denna undersökning saknar tydliga rutiner från organisationen i arbetet med nyanlända elever. Kuratorerna arbetar självständigt och har diffusa riktlinjer från ledningen som ändras regelbundet. Språkförbistringar och problematik i samband med tolk anses utmanande. Genom en tydligare styrning och struktur från ledningen skulle en högre grad av samsyn mellan olika professioner och andra organisationer möjliggöras i arbetet med nyanlända elever.  Avslutningsvis diskuteras skolkuratorernas möjligheter att bidra till att inkludera elever och hur samverkan skulle kunna förbättras.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to examine school counsellors experience of working with newly arrived immigrant students within the school’s organisation. Five school counsellors working in a municipality with many newly arrived immigrant students were interviewed in a qualitative study through a focus group discussion. The results were analysed using organisational theory and compared with previous research. Results showed that the school counsellors lacked explicit organisational routines in the work with newly arrived immigrant students, and that the counsellors worked independently but the guidelines from management were vague and changed on a regular basis. Linguistic confusion and interpretation issues were considered challenging. With more distinct control and structure from management a higher degree of consensus between different professions and other organisations would be made possible in working with newly arrived immigrant students. Finally, school counsellors contribution on how to include students and how collaboration could be improved were discussed
