Teachers' and School Heads' Salaries and Allowances in Europe - 2020/2021
Teachers’ remuneration and career prospects are an intrinsic part of policies aiming to attract the best candidates and ensure they remain in the profession. Are teachers in Europe well paid? What prospects for salary increases do they have as they progress in their career? Have teachers gained or lost purchasing power in recent years? This report shows the composition and differences in teachers’ earnings among countries in the Eurydice Network.
It provides information on statutory and actual salaries as well as allowances that teachers and school heads receive. It also analyses teachers’ perspective for salary progression over their career.
Country sheets and data used for the comparative report are available in open data format.
Data have been collected jointly by the Eurydice and the OECD/NESLI networks.
