Abstract [en]

The study deals with young people with visual impairment and their choices of upper secondary school, what is behind and how they are affected by other aspects and other people around them. It also describes how these students experience the career counseling they received for the election. This has been the purpose of the study and was examined through qualitative method and interviews with five young people aged 15 to 21 years with severe visual impairment or blindness. The results and conclusion is that these young people are greatly affected by their parents in choice of upper secondary school and that the school’s attitude to the pupil has a major impact on whether the pupil chooses the school. Most students report that they are satisfied with the career counselling they received in elementary school, but it also occur shortcomings. The basis of the work was Careership theory thanks to its concepts about turning points and routines, mainly in young people's lives such as the transition from elementary to upper secondary school.
