For the conditions of service for other education staff see Conditions of Service for Teachers Working in Early Childhood and School Education.

The qualification of a teacher's assistant, a school psychologist, a SEN specialist and a prevention specialist in a pedagogical and psychological counselling centre, see the section Education Staff Responsible for Guidance in Early Childhood and School Education.


Educational childcare staff

Educational childcare staff works in:

  • school facilities for developing personal interests (in school clubs – školní družina and školní klub)
  • school lodging and boarding facilities (domov mládeže for pupils of upper secondary schools and tertiary professional schools and internát for pupils with disabilities)
  • schools or school facilities for institutional and protective care (e.g. children's home – dětský domov) and preventive educational care (e.g. the centre for educational care (středisko výchovné péče)

The range of possible qualifications is extensive, the minimum requirement is an upper secondary education with a school-leaving examination (střední vzdělání s maturitní zkouškou) in the relevant field. The prerequisite for working with pupils with special educational needs is completed higher education in the field of special or social education, tertiary professional education in the field focusing on special education, or qualification of educational childcare staff supplemented by the study of the lifelong learning program at a higher education institution focusing on special education.


Teachers responsible for leisure activities

Teachers responsible for leisure activities work in facilities for developing personal interests (in the centres of leisure activitiesstředisko volného času). The minimum qualification requirement is upper secondary education with a school-leaving examination in the teaching field (or in another field if education is supplemented by subsequent pedagogical studies), for sub-activities sufficient upper secondary education with an apprenticeship certificate (střední vzdělání s výučním listem) supplemented by subsequent pedagogical studies is required.

Legislation and bibliography:

Act on Education Staff

Government regulation defining on work catalogue of employees in public service and administration



Non-education staff

Apart from the education staff, there are also non-education staff working in schools and school facilities.

The category of non-educational staff includes:

  • staff in school facilities who ensure its professional activity but are not educational staff (e.g. social staff of school guidance facilities, technical staff in data processing centres, staff responsible for health)
  • staff in schools and school facilities who ensure its operation (i.e. administration, maintaining, service, catering – labour force statistics classes these as technical and administrative staff and manual occupations)

Conditions of service for non-education staff are generally governed by the same regulations as are valid for education staff of particular school/institution or school facility. However, the Act on Educational Staff does not apply to them. Stated legal regulations stipulate legal adjustments for them: remuneration of non-pedagogical staff in public schools follows the pay scale with lower pay tariffs. The pay scale for non-pedagogical staff has 16 categories and 12 pay grades. They do not have the entitlement to study leave and their holiday is only 5 weeks (or 4 weeks in private schools). See the part on Conditions of Service for Teachers Working in Early Childhood and School Education.
