Abstract [en]

In today’s schools, the teachers’ work and professional knowledge are increasingly challenged and questioned, and politicians tend to seek quick solutions to the schools’ so-called crisis. One such solution was the implementation of a career position reform for advanced teachers in 2013. The reform was introduced to offer support to individual teachers and their careers as well as contribute to school development. To what extent this is achievable depends on many different factors; 29 including the conditions created for and by the teachers selected for this position, which, among others factors, is dependent on how the reform is interpreted by various actors. The aim of this presentation is to explore the ways in which the role of an advanced teacher is seen in relation to school development, by teachers selected for the position. Qualitative research methods were used to construct and analyze the data. Results suggest that variation in ways of seeing the advanced teachers’ role in relation to school development can be described by the use of four categories; Role model, Educator, Developer and Learning leader. The presentation is to be considered work in progress. The study is part of a project designed at examining how the teacher profession is ‘done’ regarding the reform of career.
