Merete C. Rekdahl


I am a PhD candidate at OsloMet at the Faculty of Teacher Education and International Studies, Department of Vocational Teacher Education.
I research a dual field of study in school management and vocational subjects, the theme is the role of school management in the cooperation between school and working life.

The doctoral project is aimed at how the collaboration between school and working life is managed in vocational education.
There are challenges in cooperation between school and working life in the school part of vocational education. A collaboration that is required for students to complete their education in their chosen field. My interest is to see how school management affects the cooperation between school and working life through a multi-level analysis of how the different actors experience cooperation.
I have a professional background with journeyman papers in two different subjects, hairdresser and typographer and a master’s degree in school management. I have worked as a vocational teacher and school leader for several years, as well as worked with educational development work in the organization Ungt Entreprenørskap (Junior Achievement). I've also been involved in writing textbooks.
