14.10.2022 - The number of teachers in compulsory education is expected to rise by around 6% up until 2031 due to population growth. Between 43 000 and 47 000 new primary teachers will have to be recruited by then. For the lower secondary level, between 26 000 and 29 000 new teachers will be needed. Furthermore, 90% of those teaching in compulsory education in 2015 who were aged under 55 at that time were still working in a school five years later, according to two separate publications from the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).
