Szent-Györgyi Teaching Staff
The mentoring of secondary school pupils in the national and cross-border secondary school program is carried out by secondary school teachers with the titles of Szent-Györgyi Senior Teacher and Szent-Györgyi Teacher.
A Szent-Györgyi Senior Teacher can be a recognized authority in his region in the field of biology or chemistry education and who has decades of experience in talent development in these subjects. The National Academy of Scientist Education establishes a contractual relationship with the leading teachers who receive the title, thus helping them to devote as much of their time as possible to the organizational tasks of the talent development program. Currently, talent selection is carried out by 24 Senior Teachers covering the 19 national districts.

Visiting partner schools in their region and maintaining continuous contact with the Szent-Györgyi Teachers there.
