As of November last year, the average salary of a teacher in Estonian municipal schools, which make up the vast majority of the education system, was 1,002 euros gross per monthly, according to the Ministry of Education.

That figure will further increase this year, as the total pot paid out to local municipalities for teachers' salaries has increased from 167.9 to 182.7 million euros, a 8.8 percent increase.

The minimum gross monthly salary for a full-time teacher increased by 12.5 percent on January 1 to 900 euros.

The average gross monthly salary in Estonia was 977 euros in the third quarter of 2014, after briefly climbing above 1,000 euros three months earlier.
