- The labor market allowance from NPO funds is often not included, which depends on the sector and school where you work.

- The labor market allowance for (deputy) directors has not yet been added to the salary of the A and D scales.

– The ministry has communicated a salary increase of 440 euros per month (with a full-time appointment). That includes all surcharges and calculated over a longer period† This is not the amount that you will receive extra in the short term.
