Which countries pay teachers the most and the least in Europe?

Which countries pay teachers the most and the least in Europe?

In which country would you be paid the most and the least as a teacher in Europe?

How much are teachers paid in Europe? Which countries pay teachers the most and the least? And how much have teacher salaries changed in the last decade?

There are considerable differences in teacher salaries in European countries.

Official gross annual salaries in public schools in lower secondary education ranged from around €4,233 in Albania to €69,076 in Luxembourg in the period 2020/2021, according to country data compiled by the European Commission/EACEA/Eurydice.

The average salary for teachers in European Union (EU) countries is €25,055.

Teachers in France and Italy earn half of what they earn in Germany

Leaving Luxembourg aside, the annual starting salary was above €50,000 in only two countries, namely Switzerland (€66,972) and Germany (€54,129).

The annual wage in France and Italy was less than half the German figure.

Bulgaria had the lowest annual teacher salary among EU countries, with a salary of around 7,731 euros per year. The figure is also below €10,000 in several other EU countries such as Latvia, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Poland.

How do European teacher salaries compare to the minimum wage?

The teacher salary to minimum wage ratio shows how much teachers earn compared to the minimum wage in each country. The ratio is calculated by dividing the teacher's gross salary by the minimum gross salary.

This ratio is highest in Germany at 2.8 while Poland has the lowest ratio at 1.1.

In other words, the average salary of teachers in Poland is very close to the minimum wage, while teachers starting to teach in German public schools earn almost three times the minimum wage in Germany.
