Each year the JET Programme, with the aid of the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, recruits more than one thousand new JET participants to come to Japan and work at either Assistant Language Teachers (ALTs) who provide language instruction in elementary, junior and senior high schools, Coordinators for International Relations (CIRs) who work in communities on international exchange activities, or Sports Exchange Advisors (SEAs) who promote international exchange through sports.
JET participants are placed with local government organisations (contracting organisations) throughout Japan in every imaginable locality, including large cities, small and medium-sized towns, and rural farming and fishing villages.
A one-year appointment on the JET Programme could be just what you are looking for to broaden your horizons and take a different step in life. For more information about applying to the JET Programme, click on the links above or contact the Embassy of Japan in your country of nationality.
