Syndicate "Education" Podkrepa

Syndicate “Education” is part of the Labour Confederation “Podkrepa” which is a member of the European Trade Union Committee of Education together with 132 teacher syndicates across Europe, and of Education International – the largest international teacher organization. Syndicate “Education” Podkrepa was founded in December 1989, immediately after the democratic changes in Bulgaria and aims at protecting the rights, dignity and professional interests of the Bulgarian teachers. The Syndicate works closely with the Ministry of Education and Science and the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy regarding changes in the current education policy and takes part in policy development. It has established itself as a corrective of state education policy and has gained a worthy place in the country's political and social life.

Currently, Syndicate “Education” has 20 000 teachers who are members of the Syndicate. The Syndicate represents its members among employers, authorities and bodies of the state administration, as well as to public organizations and institutions. Syndicate “Education” also works strongly for the capacity building of teachers on national level by organizing and conducting trainings on 55 topics approved by the Ministry of Education in Bulgaria. Syndicate “Education” operates on the territory of the country and abroad, where the local legislation allows this activity. There are 35 regional structures in all major cities in Bulgaria.
