An assistant instructor supported a Lead Instructor in the delivery of one or more courses over the course of an academic year at the Drákos Akadimía. Subjects included:
- Leadership and Martial Studies
- Law and Society
- Natural Philosophy
- Physiology and Medicine
- Mathematics, Architecture and Engineering
- Theory of Magics
The assistant instructor must have completed the full academic credential at the Drákonian Akadimía, in their chosen area of study. For potential instructors from outside of the Dragonshome Islands, a demonstration of mastery of the course material would serve as an alternative means of qualification.
An assistant instructor could generally look forward to taking over from a lead instructor when the lead instructor retired.
Payment & Reimbursement
Assistant instructors were given a stipend of 1 gold drachma per day, in addition to other perks.
Instructors were given a suite of rooms in the Akadimía Administrative Offices for their own use. These included sleeping quarters, as well as work rooms and meeting rooms. If not already a citizen, attaining the rank of instructor also included full citizenship. In addition to full use of the Akadimía's research facilities, instructors were also given acess to raw materials at the university free of charge.
Instructors were of high social status within the island of Froúrio nisí. Their rank was less prestigious in the sponsoring city-states, but was generally respected.
The ranks of instructors were filled from all families and all sponsoring city states. In addition, at least one instructor was from outside of the islands.
The rank of assistant instructor was added as the school grew in size. Recently, the number of assistant instructors has dropped along with enrollment. At the time of the attacks on Froúrio in 4706, there were six active assistant instructors all who were killed or presumed dead following the attacks.
