  • school head;
  • head of studies;
  • secretaries;
  • other members determined by the educational authorities.

In all cases, it is composed of teaching staff that combine their teaching with leadership and management responsibilities.

When Adult Education is provided by the Employment Authorities, the management staff is hired for a period lasting as long as the project they are going to join.

The contract is made by a promoting body after the candidate has passed a selection process carried out by a mixed group of the a State Public Employment Service (SEPE), or public employment entity of the corresponding Autonomous Community and the organisation responsible for the promotion of the project. The mixed group establishes the procedure to be followed, preferably through an offer handled by the employment office and/or through a public call. People previously included in the Employment Authorities’ expert files may also be taken into account.
