JET Program

The Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme (JET)


Are you thinking about applying for the JET Programme?

If you are an enthusiastic, motivated and dedicated individual, why not embark upon a journey that will change your life?Each year the JET Programme, with the aid of the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, recruits thousands of new participants to go to Japan and experience a new and unique way of life. Participants are assigned to be 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.

Participants are placed with local government organisations throughout Japan in every imaginable locality, including large cities, small and medium-sized towns, and rural farming and fishing villages.
