1. No more fixed-term contracts
An extraordinary recruitment plan to hire 150 thousand teachers by September 2015, putting an immediate stop to the current .waiting list. system.

Career shifts: from automatic pay rises connected to the length of service to quality. Every 3 years, 2 out of 3 of teachers will receive an increase of 60 Euro net per month on the basis of the quality of teaching, training and contribution to the development of their school. From 2015, each public school in the sector will publish a Self-Assessment Report and an Improvement Plan.

We will identify the 100 most burdensome rules for schools together with principals, teachers, administrative staff and students. And we will repeal them.

Matching fund schemes to reach each school with high-speed internet and Wi-Fi. Co-designing of refreshed digital services for the schools, to enhance transparency and reduce costs.

Stronger curricula for foreign languages from primary schools. Digital skills: coding and development of computational thinking at primary schools and Digital Makers Plan at high school. Economic principles will be taught in all secondary schools.
Mandatory vocational training during the last 3 years of technical and professional curricula, for at least 200 hours per year. Extending pilots of didactic enterprise. Strenghtening experimental training experiences.
12. School for all, all for School
We will make the Budget for the Improvement of the didactical offer (MOF) stable and render its use transparent, linking the allocation of funds to the school Improvement Plan.
