Abstract [en]

In the early nineties leisure-time pedagogic establishments moved in to school. The aim of the study is to try to find out how leisure-time pedagogues, who have been working for a long time, experience the moving of their establishment in to school and how this affect their practical work and their profession.

The study is based on interviewes with four leisure-time pedagogues, who all have been working before—and therefore have experienced the time before—during and after their establishment moved in to school.

These interviewes were recorded and later fully transcribed in preparation of analysis. Data was analysed with the help of the sociology of Pierre Bourdieu as a basis. Findings of the study suggest that the leisure-time pedagogues find it positive to be able to cooperate with teachers and other professional groups working in school, they explain how it enabels themselves to see pupils from a different angle and for others working in school to see pupils from a leisure-time pedagogue angle.

Some of the pedagogues explain that they find it hard to work with big groups of pupils, or in small surfaces, which they did not have to do before their establishment moved into school. They also mean that this counteract the aims and guidelines of what school should offer the pupils in forms of education, security and social development.

Findings of the study also suggest that the leisure-time pedagogues experiences their profession to be subordinated teachers. How well the pedagogues experience cooperation with teachers seems to be connected with how they experience their own profession’s status in relation to school leaders and teachers in their workplace.

In conclusion the pedagogues’ work and profession is highly influenced by their new context, which is differently experienced depending on the status of the profession in the specific sociological field, how big groups of pupils they work with, how small the surfaces which they work within are and the practical work of the pedagogue.
