Abstract [en]

There is a rhetoric emphasising that if work organisations become "learning organisation", the needs for learning are provided for. This idea is permeating work organisations not the least in the public sector where welfare sector professionals work. However, through a study on teachers´working conditions it becomes apparent that even if the school organisation claims to be a learning organisation, learning gaps can be identified. The study reveals that the conditions for learning are not optimal, despite the fact that the organisation claims to be a learning organisation. The study points at a tension between different forms of knowledge, knowledge valued by the organisation and knowledge valued by the professionals. In this article we discuss the concept of "learning organisations", by focusing on professionals´ own experiences of conditions for learning.
