Professional stability (2015)

Associate professor emerita Gerd Abrahamsen and Associate professor Åse Dagmar Knaben have conducted a small interview study to explore issues concerning pre-school teachers' professional stability.

There is a high turnover among staff in preschools, as well as preschool teachers in educational management positions. The purpose of the study is to gain knowledge about how and why some preschool teachers remain in their positions as educational leaders. What is it that motivate them and sustains their interest? Are there any common threads between these preschool teachers? In addition, which contextual factors may affect their motivation to endure in their profession?
