    Abstract [en]

    Aim

    The aim of the study is to examine how future teachers of Physical Education view the subject, the occupation and their attitudes about the future and create an understanding about this through these research questions:

    • In what way do the teacher students justify the subject Physical Education?
    • How do teacher students view the future of the subject and the occupation?
    • According to the teacher students, what and whom affect the subject?
    • Is there a difference between the teacher students’views and attitudes depending on if they are currently in their second or last year of their education?

    Method

    This study use qualitative methods in order to create a deeper understanding for the participants’ views and attitudes. Eight teacher students of Physical Education were interviewed. The interviews were between 27-57 minutes. They were recorded, transcribed and then analyzed from a socio-cultural perspective as well as Bernstein’s theory of classification.

    Result

    The participants justify the subject in words such as that it gives the students’ knowledge about how to uphold a decent standard of living and an understanding for the correlation between physical activity, nutrition, health and wellbeing. They think the students attitudes about the subject is problematic and they want to elevate the status of the occupation by communicating that the subject is an important one as well as an opportunity for physical activity. They think that the steering documents should be what mostly affect the subject and the teacher but they also mention other framing factors and students as strongly affecting the teacher and the subject. They problematize around how modern competitive sport affect the subject. 

    Conclusion

    Based on the results of this study it seems as though these future teachers of Physical Education has communicative tools to argue for their subject’s place in schools today. Despite the fact that obstacles such as framing factors still exist one can recognize some creative solutions or ambitions to work around them with these future teachers. They are proud about their occupation and have ambitions to develop it and also to change how parents, students and colleagues view the subject.
