The classification is based on function and organises staff into four main functional categories.

The classification is:

i) Instructional personnel;
ii) Professional support for students;
iii) Management/Quality control/Administration; and
iv) Maintenance and operations personnel.

Teaching staff (teachers) and teachers’ aides make up the category instructional personnel.

For the purposes of Indicator D2 in the OECD Education at a Glance, only teaching staff is taken into account.
