Abstract [sv]

Studie- och yrkesvägledningenhar de senaste åren varit utsatt för politisk debatt. Många experter, forskare och politiker har uttalat kritik kring verksamheten, framförallt för att granskningar visat att engagemanget kring området varit bristfälligt på skolorna. Utredningar har gjorts, projektarbeten har satts igång och rekommendationer har getts ut, allt för att öka måluppfyllelsen enligt områdets styrdokument. Syftet med studien är att granska problematiken från skolans eget perspektiv, genom att dokumentera röster från skolans insida. Elever, lärare och studie- och yrkesvägledare har genom enkäter fått uttala sig om sina personliga erfarenheter, uppfattningar och preferenser angående verksamhetsområdet. Resultatet visar på att studie- och yrkesväglednings verksamheten anses som viktig av skolans elever och personal. Den visar emellertid också på att samsynen av verksamheten är dålig mellan de olika grupperna, där lärarna står längst bort från styrdokumentens intentioner. Resultaten visar dessutom att delar av skolans omvärldsorientering, angående kultur och föreningsliv, inte riktigt uppfattas som studie- och yrkesvägledande aktiviteter.

Abstract [en]

Study and vocational guidancehas in recent years been subject to political debate. Many experts, researchers and politicians have expressed criticism about the guidance, mainly because studies have shown that the engagement of the area has been inadequate at schools. Investigations have been made, projects have been undertaken and recommendations were released, all to increase the compliance rate, according to the area's governing documents. The purpose if this study is to examine the problem from the school´s own perspective, by documenting the voices from those inside the school. Students, teachers and guidance counselors have through questionnaires been able to express their own personal view of experiences, perceptions and preferences regarding counseling activities at school. The result shows that guidance and counseling activities are deemed as important by the school's students and staff. The result also, however, shows that the convergence of educational and vocational guidance is poor between the different groups at school, whereteachers are furthest away from the policy documents intentions. Furthermore they also show that parts of the school's social orientation, regarding culture and clubs, are not really perceived as educational and vocational guidance activities.
