-Teach alongside a Japanese teacher, and experience communicating with students and school staff throughout the day inside and outside of class.
-Enjoy the opportunity to eat and play with the students during lunch/recess, participate in school festivals, clubs and events, and much more throughout the school year.
Some of the advantages of working with Borderlink include:
-We help you get prepared to make the trip to Japan and provide sponsorship/support for Immigration/Visa matters.
-We'll get you ready to step into the classroom with an extensive orientation & training session for new employees. Get acclimated to Japan and the Borderlink teaching system before you start your first day of school! This training continues with seasonal sessions hosted by our team of veteran trainers and even specialized 1-on-1 training when required.
-Never created a class lesson plan before? No problem! Our ever-expanding database of materials and worksheets is made available for all our ALTs to use and adapt to best fit their classes. We believe in offering flexibility to our teachers and appreciate your creative input and new ideas.
-We offer help setting up bank account, finding accommodations, and 24/7 support for any kind of daily life issue.
-There's always room for growth. Many in our management team began as ALTs or teachers themselves, and over the years accumulated the knowledge and skills to pass on to others.
With the increased focus the Japanese education system has placed on English during the run-up to the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, the need for high-quality ALTs has risen. Although prior teaching experience and Japanese ability are not required, they are highly sought after. Cities want the best. Here at Borderlink, we'll work to help you be the best. Whether you have prior experience in education or not, we're ready to believe in your possibility, and help you realize your potential as a teacher.
If this sounds like the opportunity you've been waiting for, we're waiting to hear from you! Please apply today, and thank you for your interest in Borderlink!
