Teach English in Japan?

JETThe Japan Exchange and Teaching – JET – Programme, an official Japanese Government scheme, sends graduates to Japan in order to promote international understanding at grass-roots level and to improve foreign language teaching in schools.

Essentially the Jet Programme recruits Assistant Language Teachers to work in a Japanese Secondary School or local Board of Education.  Typically you would:

  • Spend 15-20 hours a week team-teaching or helping with classes taught by Japanese Teachers of English (JTEs)
  • Assist in the preparation of teaching materials
  • Take part in school extra-curricular activities
  • Promote communicative language-learning in the classroom

You can find out about the opportunity at www.jet-uk.org.  You will need to apply by 6:00pm on the final Friday in November.
