    The majority of primary school teachers in their careers take a complex role of the class teacher that is defined by a number of laws and by-laws. Class teachers are required to perform pedagogical, administrative and organizational tasks for which they spend more or less time. Pupils and their parents, teaching staff and the principal expect a lot from the class teacher. For this reason, the class teacher needs help in carrying out the tasks. The role of the class teacher requires a lot of teachers’ expertise, personal commitment, effort, time, patience, effort and adjustment. In the theoretical part of the master thesis, we have reviewed what is written about the class teacher in legislation. We have stated class teacher´s tasks and defined them in detail. We were interested in teacher´s professional development and further education opportunities and training for teachers in the field of class teacher. In the empirical part we gathered the primary school teacher´s position on performing the class teacher functions, the time spent to perform the tasks and how they value the individual tasks of the class teacher. We have researched, who and how often helps teachers in performing the class teacher´s tasks, how the class teacher´s training takes place and in which areas would teachers like to qualify. We have listed opinions of teachers on being a class teacher. So that successfulness of the class teacher in the future wouldn't depend only upon personality features and ingenuities of an individual teacher, he or she must carry out systematic education and training of teachers in the field of the class teacher. Based on findings of surveyable quantitative research, we have formed guidelines for preparing programmes of further education and training in the field of the class teacher. This will help class teachers to be trained to better perform the tasks of the class and, consequently, to prefer carrying out the tasks of the class teacher.
