How is the mentoring perceived by newly qualified social workers? : A qualitative study of how experienced social workers perceive mentoring for newly qualified social workers in social services (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim was to find out the experiences of mentoring and its introduction in social services. The object was achieved by interviewing experienced social worker who had a few years of work experience in social services. Our study was an attempt to understand how mentoring can be seen during the induction period for newly qualified social workers in social services. To get an understanding of the interviewees' perceptions of mentoring, we tooke help of a Human Resources perspective. In the study, we used a qualitative research with data collection based on semi-structured interviews. The sample consisted of a convenience sample of five experienced social workers in department’s financial assistance and child and youth care. According to the study result it is important to have a mentoring and a comprehensive introduction, since it benefits the entire organization. All respondents in the study felt that a mentoring provides security and a check for recent graduates. Based on the results we have seen that even if an organization has an elaborate mentoring program/introduction program it’s not guaranteed to be completed.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka erfarna socialsekreterares uppfattningar kring mentorskap samt den introduktion nyutexaminerade får inom socialtjänsten. Syftet uppnådes genom intervjuer med erfarna socialsekreterare som har arbetslivserfarenheter inom socialtjänsten. Studien kan ses som ett försök till att förstå hur mentorskap kan uppfattas under introduktionsperioden för nyutexaminerade socionomer inom socialtjänsten. För att få en förståelse för intervjupersonernas uppfattningar kring mentorskap har ett Human Resource (HR) perspektiv använts. Studien är kvalitativ och baserad på semistrukturerade intervjuer. Urvalet bestod av ett fem erfarna socialsekreterare inom avdelningarna ekonomiskt bistånd och barn- och ungdomsvården. Resultat påvisade vikten av att tillämpa ett mentorskap och en innehållsrik introduktion. Detta var något som gynnade hela organisationen. Mentorskapet upplevdes bidra till trygghet och kontroll för de nyutexaminerade. Utifrån resultatet har vi kunnat konstatera att även om en organisation har ett utarbetat mentorskapsprogram/introduktionsprogram är det inte garanterat att det fullföljs.
