Förbundet Folkhögskollärarna - Federation Folk High School teachers

Who we are?

The Federation Folk High School teachers (former Swedish Union for Folk High School Teachers, SFHL) is a teachers union. The organisation works with those students who aim to become teachers within the folk high school. It was started in 1902 and has since 1920 published the magazine FOLKHÖGSKOLAN. The main task for organisation is to represent its members and secure their union rights at the workplace. It also aims to develop the folk high school enterprise and protect the distinctive character of each folk high school. The members of the organisation are all, with few exceptions, active teachers or headmasters/principals at a folk high school. This means that the members have a strong and common professional identity.
