Abstract [en]

How do we match our education with the needs of the construction line of business and the requirements

of the Swedish National Agency for education? Is there something that we have to change?

In this study I have asked our former students about their opinion of our education and I have also asked them to give me their view on what a good teacher is like. I have been able to benefit a lot from their answers in my efforts to be that good teacher. This survey took place at Facebook.

The answers showed that we carry on a piece of solid workmanship. But you can always improve, try harder. The profession contains so many techniques, so many innovations that is impossible to match them all. So, training has to get on and on through all of the students professional life, starting when they leave school and get their first employment as apprentices.

School education gives them 2500 hours. The trade union gives them still 300 hours if they have passed the core subjects. If they have been working during holidays they get a further 600 hours, making it a total of 3400 hours, equivalent to half way getting fully paid.

The construction business and school have a shared responsibility for the education of constructors. The business has no specific requirements for their apprentices, more than the intention to work as best as they can, and to learn. Social behaviour is also very important, taking parts in conversations during breaks and being parts of good team work.
