Teach in Japan Graduate Programme

Job description

Take control of your teaching adventure in Japan

Turn your dreams of experiencing Japan into a well-paid reality on this 12-month immersive teaching adventure.

With its quirky culture, orderly cities, age-old tradition and stunning scenery, Japan is the kind of place that’ll keep you on your toes. Somehow seamlessly blending calm with chaos and old with new, it’s a land of contradictions — and one that requires much more than a quick visit to understand.

On this 12-month teaching adventure, you’ll immerse yourself in all things Japan. BBQ your nights away at cosy Izakaya, get right in the thick of things on the daily commute and try learning one of the most unique languages around. Wherever your adventure takes you, it won’t be disappointing. Now, let’s make this happen!

Are you a supporting act or centre stage kind of grad? We ask because you’ve got two choices: you can either become an Assistant Language Teacher or run the show. It’s up to you…

  • Position: main classroom teacher
  • Schedule: work at multiple branches of the same company on different days of the week

You’ll need to decide before you go, but no sweat. You can chat with our team about the options or have your questions answered on a call. That’s what we’re here for.

Oh, and the best part? Once you’ve chosen your placement, we’ll guarantee your choice and make sure it’s met.
