The salary scales on this website are those set out in the latest circular letters issued by the relevant Government Department. However, in some cases, there can be a delay between the publication of the circular letter authorising payment and the actual payment of the increases to members. Where delays occur, payment is backdated to the relevant date set out in the circular letter

Revised salary scale for teachers who entered the profession since 1/1/11. 

This includes the full value of the Professional Masters of Education (PME)/Higher Diploma in Education Allowance (H.Dip) with effect from 1st February 2022.

These scales incorporate the 1% pay increase under the Public Service Agreement 2024-2026, effective from 1st June 2024.

Accordingly, payment of the Honours Primary Degree allowance, Pass Primary Degree allowance and Pass Masters Degree allowance ceased for post 1/1/11 entrants from 1/1/18.

The value of the Honours Masters Degree allowance and Doctorate Degree allowance will reduce to reflect the incorporation of the Honours Primary Degree allowance into scale.
