Abstract [en]

During 2011 several national reforms are implemented in Sweden, among them new curriculum fo rcompulsory school. To support the implementation the National Agency for Education is organizing conferences and producing information material, among other things. There are several target groups for the support, among them responsible authorities, such as private responsible authorities and public responsible authorities (municipalities, the state). How the support received and what is the further need for carrying out the implementation successfully? Has the implementation started? Arethere certain persons selected to work with the implementation at a local level? These were questions included in a questionnaire during spring 2011 to private responsible authorities and public responsible authorities. The result showed that support such as conference with information about reforms and information brochures were perceived as positive support and that the National Agency for Education had clarified different responsibility levels. Everything is not positive, for an example some written documents were late and still not produced autumn 2011 and the website is not easy touse. The implementation process has started according to most of the responsible authorities, some started as early as 2009, most of them autumn 2010. Some difficulties in the implementation process were mentioned, such as for example lack of time, some documents are or were late and other reorganizations also takes time. On the contrary, most of the staff is interested and a rewriting of curricula was perceived as needed. The conclusion is that the support from the National Agency for Education has been well organized and that the responsible authorities are positive to the support.The way the support is organized is suggesting that the National Agency for Education is using a model where the responsible authorities are but one part in a chain where other actors are going to continue. Further studies will explore whether the model is possible to describe the ongoing implementation.
