The pay rise, to affect almost 170,000 teachers, will be implemented "technically" by introducing a "professional allowance" Kásler said.

Teachers in training will get the 10% pay rise on top of an 8% salary increase from January 1, he added.

It is the governmentʼs tasks to ensure teachersʼ training and continuing education, to continue to improve their working conditions and their pay, and to acknowledge their work, Kásler said.
