Abstract [en]

In this presentation the background, development and state of the actual regarding support to newly qualified teachers (NQT) and teacher induction system in Sweden will be outlined. The issue supporting NQTs became high on the educational agenda 2006 when an Official Investigation was launced and in 2008 proposed a national system national mandatory induction system, with mentoring, a probationary year and the registration of teachers as central components (SOU, 2008:52). This was implemented in 2010-2011 but severe challenges regarding the registration occurred leading to recurrent changes in the legislation regarding the legislation. Further, in mid 2014 the principals’ evaluation of the NQTs was abolished and the teacher registration was earned when graduation from teacher education. This lead to mentoring became less prioritized, even though there are still obvious needs for i. It is concluded that the issue of mentoring to a great extent since than has been buried under other ‘more important’ issues, and seems to have faded away even though the legislation regarding mentoring is in place.

Implementing mentoring for NQTs may imply the implementation of education for the mentors. However, in Sweden it was just five out of 18 surveyed universities and university colleagues that gave an mentor education of 7,5 ECTS (five week of studies). In this presentations the present state of the actual in this matter for autumn 2019 will be presented as a summary of challenges to overcome if (agin) putting mentoring of NQTs higher on the educational agenda in Sweden
