Studenteropgave: Kandidatprojekt


The aim of the project is to examine how a group of shipping-trainees conduct their everyday life in both work and school contexts, and how their self-understandings in these two contexts influence on how they conduct their everyday life as shipping-trainees. In order to shed light on how they manage to balance these two contexts in their everyday life, we conducted four in-depth qualitative interviews with shipping-trainees from four different work places.
To gain an understanding of how the subjects conduct their everyday lives we base our theory upon Ole Dreier’s explanation of this. The project's theoretical base is a critical psychological point of view, which especially is shown in the choice of Ole Dreier’s theory, which we use to analyze the empirical material. Furthermore the methodology to collect the empirical data is based on critical psychological aspects for doing so. In the analysis we focus on how demands in the two contexts influences on the way the co-participants conduct their everyday life, and how their own self-understanding in these contexts shape the way the trainees conduct their lives as shipping-trainees. We found that there is a similarity compared to the identified conditions for the co-participants conduct of everyday life but there is a clear diversity in their way of conducting their lives through their actions. In conclusion we found that in the way the shipping-trainees conduct their everyday life, they don’t simply work as trainees, they are trainees. Throughout our analysis it becomes apparent that the two contexts have an impact on the shipping-trainees self-understanding.
