Summary

The subject introduces listeners to the specifics and conception of two segments of selected sectors of public sector, namely education and culture. Approaches to education and culture, governance models and sector specificities in the context of democratically managed countries and European perceptions of cultural values are discussed. Within both segments, the interpretation focuses on clarifying the functioning of different types of educational and cultural organisations, possible legal forms and individual founders. The specifics of the pre-primary, primary, secondary and tertiary levels of education and the role of schools and school facilities are clarified in education. In the culture is specified the role of monument objects, museums, galleries, theatres, art files, libraries, zoos, observatory, planetarium and mass media. Attention is paid to funding in the interpretation; Organisational and institutional security; Characteristics of the services provided and forms of cooperation in both national and international contexts.
