Hungarian teachers will receive a pay rise averaging 10 percent in August, it has been revealed.
According to a report in Magyar Nemzet, depending on qualifications and the number of years worked, each teacher will receive an additional monthly HUF 20,000-40,000 (EUR 58-115).
The newspaper reported that head teachers and their deputies will also receive a higher managerial bonus, which, depending on the size of the school, could even double the basic salary in some cases. School leaders have so far received 40-80 percent of their basic salary in the form of a managerial bonus, which will now increase to 60-170 percent.
In the new system, the head of a school with over 400 pupils, with 33 years of experience, will earn a monthly HUF 619,000 before tax compared with the current HUF 477,000.
