A voluntary teacher certification system has been introduced in Armenia since 2022, based on which teachers who score high scores in the scope of the certification have the opportunity to receive a higher salary. Today, the salary of 1565 teachers in Armenia participating in voluntary certification has doubled from 125,000 to 250,000 AMD, 520 teachers receive a monthly salary of 300,000-350,000 AMD, and 150 teachers receive a monthly salary of 450,000 AMD. Other surcharges are also added to this, as in the case of the categorization mechanism. There are about 300 qualified teachers for whom there is an additional payment system on top of the 450,000 AMD they currently receive.
