It is an incredible honour to go to work each day and know that you are involved with children’s curiosity and their desire to learn new things, getting to challenge them and take them forward while retaining their thirst for knowledge. I have always been interested in other people and I realised early on that I wanted to work with children.Anne Karlsson, headteacher and preschool manager at Vittra Halmstad

What does Vittra mean to you?

For me Vittra can be summed up in one sentence: I can, you can, together we can do more. This applies in all relationships: pupil/pupil, teacher/pupil, teacher/teacher and teacher/parent.

What is the best thing about working for Vittra?

The best thing about Vittra is that we focus on individual development, both in terms of knowledge and the social relationships of the children/pupils. I feel that we have a sound system of peer-to-peer learning where you are able to develop as a teacher and work in a team that drives learning forward. We also have a clear Vittra culture that allows teachers to focus on the pupils.

My mother has always worked in a school as a classroom assistant, so I quickly understood what a

vital undertaking it is to work with children and young people. I also tried working in school as a classroom assistant straight after upper secondary school and I felt I had a lot to offer. What has been most rewarding for me and what made me become a teacher was the teacher I had at upper secondary school. His name was Anders and he had an incredible capacity to engage and challenge his students, and he created fantastic learning opportunities. Several of my classmates also chose to become teachers and we no doubt all have Anders to thank for that.

What does Vittra mean to you?

For me Vittra is a school with committed and driven staff who work actively to develop what we do through peer-to-peer learning. We work to achieve good knowledge outcomes and a secure and challenging learning environment with happy and engaged pupils who have a thirst to learn. We have a conscious focus on creating enjoyable and contemporary learning.

I can sum up Vittra in three words: security, commitment and quality.
