Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to improve understanding of how upper secondary school acknowledge and adjust support and guidance for gifted students regarding their future academic and professional career. The study examined school pricipals and career counselors approach to guidance work with gifted students and how the above mentioned professionals received information about gifted students. It was further examined what measures were applied to adjust the upper secondary school to the needs of gifted students. Qualitative interviews were conducted and the results showed that in cases where the informants were told it took place in conjunctions with seminars about the class, through grades or through a teacher or the students themselves who contacted the career counselor or principal at the upper secondary school.The giftedness was connected to the school curriculum and various course topics in the secondary programs. School principals viewed the career counselor as an important resource to provide motivational support, individualize and survey future plans. Career counselors experienced that gifted students were ahead in their maturity process and often arrived earlier than other students with ideas and questions for the career counselor. The upper secondary school tried to the extent resources were available, to provide stimulus and motivation for the gifted students in different ways - through acceleration, enrichment and motivational activities.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att öka kunskaperna om hur gymnasieskolan uppmärksammar och anpassar stöd och vägledning för särbegåvade elever beträffande deras framtida studie- och yrkeskarriär. Studien har undersökt skolledares och studie- och yrkesvägledares syn på vägledningsarbete med särbegåvade elever och hur dessa yrkesgrupper får information om särbegåvade elever. Vidare undersöktes vilka åtgärder som tillämpades för att anpassa gymnaiseskolan efter särbegåvade elevers behov. Kvalitativa intervjuer genomfördes och resultatet visade att i de fall informanterna fick information kom den i samband med klasskonferenser, genom betyg eller genom lärare eller eleven själv som tagit kontakt med studie- och yrkesvägledare eller rektor på gymnasieskolan. Begåvningarna kopplas till skolans läroplaner och de olika gymnasieprorammens kursämnen. Skolledarna såg studie- och yrkesvägledningen som en viktig resurs för att kunna ge motiverande stöd, individanpassa och kartlägga framtidsplaner. Studie- och yrkesvägledare upplevde att särbegåvade elever låg före i mognadsprocessen och ofta kom tidigare än andra elever med idéer och frågor till studie- och yrkesvägledaren. Gymnasieskolorna försökte i mån av resurser ge stimulans och motivation till de särbegåvade eleverna på olika sätt - genom acceleration, berikande och motivationshöjande insatser.
