EU Sources - Report on teachers’ salaries - October 31, 2016

The Eurydice network published an annual report on teachers’ and school heads’ salaries and allowances in Europe for the period 2015-2016. It analyses statutory salaries and allowances for teachers and school heads in 40 European countries and regions and looks into how they have changed as compared to 2014/2015. The report points out that in about 30 out of 40 surveyed countries, the minimum annual statutory salaries for teachers are lower than the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita. In most of the countries where an increase took place, it amounted only to 1-4% (Spain and the UK: 1 %, Serbia and Macedonia: 4%), while in some countries the increase was just a compensation for inflation (Germany) or a lagged effect of the reforms implemented several years earlier (Slovakia: reforms in 2009, Hungary: 2012, Estonia: 2013).
