Global Learning Advancement Department (GLAD) is a non-profit organization founded by a group of former Japanese teachers with a vision to support the growth of Global-minded students in Japan. GLAD incorporated a team focused on the recruiting, training and dispatching of foreign teachers to local public and private schools.

This is our logic: As a company, by recruiting and introducing global-minded, respectful, positive, and hard working educators to schools, we can influence Japan’s society - Through education.

We pride ourselves for putting a lot of effort into caring for our teachers.

It's quite simple - Happy teachers means happy children and schools.

As a part of GLAD, you will be a vital individual of a growing community which aims to educate, motivate and inspire the youth of Japan. You will not only be able to teach English, but you will also be able to promote cultural exchange as an ambassador of your country.
