”Very stressful, many children, many requirements” : An interview study of how preschool teachers perceive their work situation (English)
Abstract [sv]

Huvudsyftet med denna studie var att undersöka hur förskolepedagogens arbetssituation har förändrats under dennes yrkesverksamma år. Vi ville även ta reda på vilka faktorer som påverkat stressen samt vilka konsekvenser det medfört.

Vi har använt oss av en kvalitativ metod för att få veta hur pedagogen ser på sin arbetssituation. Vi intervjuade tio pedagoger med ett fåtal enkla och tydliga frågor. På så vis fick vi personliga och utförliga svar från våra informanter. Vår teoretiska grund baseras på forskning inom stress och samhällsförändring.

Resultatet av vår studie visar att alla pedagoger var nöjda med sitt yrkesval men inte med sin arbetssituation. Samtliga ansåg att de påverkats av den ökade stressen och att de främsta stressfaktorerna var barngruppsstorleken, de nya kraven och förändrade arbetsuppgifterna.

Abstract [en]

The main objective of this study is to investigate how the preschool teachers work situation has changed during their working years. We also wanted to see what the elements are that influenced the stress that they felt and what the consequences are.

We used a qualitative interview method to learn what the preschool teacher think of their work situation. We interviewed ten teachers and by using only a few plain questions we got detailed and personal answers from our informers. The theoretical base in our research is about stress and the social change.

The result shows that the preschool teachers all experienced that their work situation had changed during their working years. The study shows that all the interviewed teachers felt that the intolerable burden in their work environment was increased. They felt that the prime reason of their stress was the group size of children, the new demands and the for them altered job assignments
