Abstract [en]

There has been a change in the social-meritocratic-gender profile of recruits to Swedish upper secondary school teacher education. Students are being recruited from the broad classes of society; they have lower grades from secondary education, and increasingly, women predominate. In contrast to the traditional teacher student, today’s recruits might be said to be of a new generation. It is very instructive to study how new students formulate their motives and how they conceive of their educational and vocational choices; and then put that in relation to the changing teacher student demographic. This article focuses therefore on teacher students’ motives and their conceptions, expressed in individual ways, with respect to time and subject, and with a view to the study course and the teaching vocation. The way the students relate to their own experiences as pupils plays a central role in their choice of education and vocation, but they are influenced individually in degree and direction. The empirical material is mainly based on 10 thematic structured interviews with beginners at the teacher education course, specialized towards upper secondary school, at Växjö University.
