Heart English School is seeking candidates for ongoing positions in Japanese public schools, with a special focus on the new school year coming up in April 2012. Positions are in elementary, junior high, and high schools, with locations all across eastern Japan, with the largest focus on the Kanto region, in a wide range of environments. Contracts range in amount of working days and hours, so those looking for more freedom regarding working schedules may have interest.
We may have positions available before the April start date, and will be interested to hear from those available earlier, but the vast majority of positions begin at that time for the start of the school year.
Positions in public schools include assistants to the Japanese English teacher (Assistant Language Teacher, or ALT) or more independent teaching with company support (Native English Teacher, or NET).
Whichever the position, the work involves the education and internationalization of Japanese young people in their own environment. ALTs and NETs teach during classtime, but also eat with students at lunch, play with them during recess or during sports practice, and in general socialize with the children to give them the chance to use English naturally with a native speaker. The work is very rewarding and the chance to impact hundreds of lives is there, with the many joys and responsibilities that go along with it.
-Native English Speaking ability
-Valid working visa or ability to be sponsored (BA/BS degree or higher)
-Real enjoyment in working with children and impacting them positively
-Japanese language ability, as well as experience teaching English or living in Japan, are helpful but not mandatory
Heart English School can assist if necessary with:
-Full training and orientation
-Arranging a rental car
Heart English School hopes to receive your application soon. Please contact us any time if you have questions for working in a Japanese public school, whether in the near future or looking forward toward the new school year.
