Abstract [sv]

Följande studie har till syfte att undersöka hur lärarrekryteringsarbetet på kommunala och

fristående gymnasieskolor i en mellanstor kommun i södra Sverige går till. Skillnader och

likheter vid rekrytering av lärare mellan de olika skolorna har undersökts. De psykologiska

aspekterna (intelligens/begåvning, personlighet och kompetens) knutna till urval har

behandlats i denna uppsats för att undersöka om dessa aspekter väger in i beslutet om

anställning. Sex rektorer från sex olika gymnasieskolor (tre kommunala och tre fristående

skolor) i en mellanstor kommun i södra Sverige har intervjuats. Resultatet av intervjuerna har

sammanfattats, diskuterats och analyserats utifrån tidigare forskning och teorier. De aspekter som

diskuterats i studien är rekryteringsarbetet på de olika skolorna, felrekryteringar,

anställningsförlopp, lärarkompetens och egenskaper, användandet av personlighets- och

intelligenstest samt lärarbehörighet. De slutsatser författarna kommit fram till är att det råder

likhet mellan de olika skolorna när det handlar om hur rekryteringsarbetet ser ut. Dock finns

vissa skillnader i vilka som är med vid anställningsintervjun på skolorna och vilka sökande

som har företräde till en ledig lärartjänst. Alla skolor strävar efter att ha behöriga lärare i de

undervisande ämnena. Inga av skolorna använder sig av begåvningstest eller

personlighetstestning vid rekryteringsarbete, istället används intervjuer frekvent.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine the recruitment procedure of teachers on municipal and

independent comprehensive upper secondary schools in a medium-sized municipality in

southern Sweden. The problems that compose the foundation of the study are how recruitment

of upper secondary schools teachers is being carried out. Differences and resemblances in the

recruitment process between the different type of schools was studied. The psychological

aspects (intelligence/aptitude, personality and competence) tied to selections has been treated

in this essay in order to examine if these aspects are important for the decision about

employment. Six headmasters from six different comprehensive upper secondary schools

(three municipal and three independent schools) in a medium-sized municipality in southern

Sweden was interviewed. The result of the interviews has been summarized, discussed and

analyzed from earlier research and theories. The aspects that have been discussed are

recruitment procedures on the different schools, wrong recruitments, employment course,

teacher competences and other competences, the use of personality - and intelligence tests and

teacher qualifications. The analysis and discussion of this study point out that there is

resemblance between the different schools concerning the recruitment procedure. Differences

between the schools are: who is present during the employment interview at the schools and

which applicants have precedence to a vacant teaching position. All schools strive to have

authorized teachers in the teaching subjects. None of the schools used intelligence/aptitude- or

personality tests during the recruitment procedure. Instead they used interviews frequently.
