10.4Other education staff or staff working with schools

Last update: 12 June 2022

In addition to teaching staff, the standards for the number of employees in schools, kindergartens and service units also include non-teaching staff:

  • social and health care servants (medical person and a librarian),
  • auxiliary staff (persons responsible for the hygiene, cooks, etc.).

A librarian is in charge of the school library. The main functions of the librarian are related to the preservation and enrichment of book-stock, distribution of printed materials, assisting pupils with their selection of teaching and belletristic literature, maintaining contacts with the school Board of Trustees and other partners existing in the social environment, with the purpose of fundraising for purchasing literature and providing donations to the library. For the storage and enrichment of the museum collections at school, teachers in the respective subjects (e.g., biology, history, geology) are most frequently in charge.
