Project: DissertationIndividual research project


Teacher efficiency, competence and well-being are central to society. In Sweden, recent reports have indicated teachers to belong to a profession with difficult circumstances for work. The thesis work hones in on communication between teachers, salient work related factors and common health concerns.
The results augments the evidence that teachers are part of a vulnerable occupational group. Especially disconcerting and relevant for teachers in Sweden are results indicative of problems with finding time to interact with colleagues, the possibility to recover from work, and insufficient separation between work and spare time.
