New Eurydice report: Teachers’ and School Heads’ Salaries and Allowances in Europe – 2014/15

The Eurydice network has published a new report titled ‘Teachers’ and School Heads’ Salaries and Allowances in Europe – 2014/15’.

The publication evaluates teachers’ and school heads’ working conditions in 2014/2015, analyses how their salaries have changed over the last 2 years, outlines the relation of salaries to GDP, and also indicates how easy it is for teachers to make the transition from the minimum to maximum salary level. It also includes individual country sheets with detailed information on gross annual salaries, salary progression and available allowances.

One of the main findings of this publication is that compared to 2013/2014, teachers’ salaries have increased in most European countries in 2014/2015, with salary reforms and adjustments to the cost of living mentioned as the main reasons. This comes after salary decreases in many countries in the previous years due to the economic crisis.

The report is available on the Eurydice website.
