Abstract

The purpose of the study is to demonstrate the methods that teachers in after-school use, in order to make visible the quality of work in after-school. The purpose of the study, was awakened by the report, “Does after-school exist?” (Finns fritids, Skolverket, 2000). To answer the questions of the study qualitative interviews have been conducted whit eight after-school teachers.

Today, after-school is regarded as an invisible operation, and it’s important to move into an active position on the issue of visibility of quality work, (Skolverket, 2000). Andersson (2011) argues that professionals and staff in after-school should attack the issue and illustrate their occupation. In order to illustrate the quality of after-school, the teachers in after-schools need be aware of what is included in the concept of quality, and to have a shared foundational view (Andersson, 2011; Lindholm, Larsson, Kocken, 1996). The results indicate that teachers in after-school argue that the concept of quality today, is too subjective and difficult to interpret. Teachers in after- school means that the quality of work is made visible by a large variety of methods. Some of the methods that emerged in the results were to take pictures and illustrate planning and evaluation processes during open house invitations. Methods used to highlight the quality depend on the target audience. The results show that teachers in after-school prioritize visibility of quality work to pupils first. The management and principals were prioritized last. The results also reveal factors that affect the visibility of the quality of after- school in different ways. The most apparent factor being time. The study discussed whether the methods teachers use to make themselves visible to different target audiences are deliberate or unplanned. According to Eneris, m.fl., (2010) the after-school is a blind spot that needs to be made visible. The study has provided insight into the importance of consciously choosing the method for making the quality of work visible to different target audiences.
