School heads' salaries and allowances

  • School heads’ remuneration is regulated by top-level authorities.
  • The minimum qualification requirements for school heads at primary level is ISCED 6 and ISCED 7 at secondary level. In addition, at primary level they must have 5 years’ experience as a career civil servant in the public teaching service, and a specific training course of a minimum of 120 hours on the development of the school management function. At least every 8 years, all school heads need to complete an updating school head's management course.
