Nobody travels without a bag : A study on the validation in the context of a business stoppage (English)
Abstract [sv]

I december 2011 går Saab Automobile i konkurs och många blir utan arbete. Både statliga och EU-finansierade medel satsas för att undvika att de drabbade skulle fastna i långtidsarbetslöshet. Som en del i satsningen erbjöds före detta Saab anställda att få sina yrkeskunskaper validerade till motsvarande gymnasiebetyg.

Validering ses kunna öka en person möjligheter till ny anställning. Den sägs också kunna erkänna en individs kunskaper och kompetenser.

Syftet med följande studie är att beskriva och analysera validering av reell kompetens samt att förstå detta ur ett erkännandeperspektiv. Detta studerades genom att ta del av berättelser både från personal och från deltagare i valideringsprocessen. Genom att få de före detta anställdas syn på vad validering betytt för dem ämnade studien att besvara på vilken nivå validering kan ge ett erkännande. Studien visar på att valideringen har gett individuella vinster och därmed ett erkännande på individnivå. De före detta anställda vid Saab Automobile upplever inte att de hade någon användning för de betyg som valideringen gav därför har valideringen inte lett till något erkännande på varken grupp- eller samhällsnivå

Abstract [en]

In December 2011 Saab Automobile goes bankrupt and many lost their employment. Both governmental and EU-funded capitals were invested in measures to prevent those affected from facing long-term unemployment. As a part of this investment the former employees of Saab was offered to have their competencies validated to a grade equal to a high school-diploma. The validation was a sort of RPL-process (Recognition Of Prior Learning). This process is called ‘validering’ (validation) in Swedish.

RPL is known to be able to increase a person’s possibility to a new employment. It is also known to be able to recognize an individual’s knowledge and competencies.

The purpose of this study is to describe and analyze the RPL and to understand this from a recognition perspective. This was studied by taking part of stories both from personnel and by participants. By getting the former employees' views on what RPL meant to them, the study hoped to answer on what level RPL was able to give them recognition. The study shows that the RPL have given some individual profits and thereby recognition on the individual level. The former Saab employees had not much use for the grade that the RPL gave them therefore it has not led to any recognition on either group- or community level
