Yet before that, here’s a brief definition about salary grade first.
What is a Salary grade?
A salary grade is a number that defines the monthly payment/income a government employee receives.
Each government position is assigned a salary grade based on its difficulty level and range of responsibilities. The President of the Philippines is the highest responsibility. Hence, the salary grade of the president is Grade 33 and the lowest responsibility in the Philippines is Utility Worker with a Salary grade of 1. Salary grades in the Philippine government run from 1-33 and Salary grade 33 is the highest pay.
The average teacher in the Philippines is starting to get paid more. With the Salary Standardization Law of 2019, the national average public school teacher’s salary in 2021–2023 will be higher than their private-sector counterparts by around 65 to 87%.
The said increases as per RA 11466, are scheduled in four tranches—from the year 2020 until the year 2023. The increases will be per Salary Grade (SG) and step corresponding to the position.
