Borderlink, Inc. is now hiring flexible and self-motivated individuals to join us this spring as Assistant Language Teachers (ALTs)! Many positions will start from April 2019, so now is your chance to secure a spot teaching English in public school- the best way to get real classroom experience and start or continue your career as an English educator.

--Role & Responsibilities--

Our ALTs work in public elementary and/or junior high schools across eastern Japan (Kanto, Kansai and surrounding areas). We work normal public school hours, enjoying free evenings and weekends as well as national holidays and winter/summer school breaks.

We teach alongside Japanese teachers and engage in communication with students and school staff throughout the day inside and outside of class. As an ALT, you'll 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.

--Benefits & Advantages--

At Borderlink, we do our best to 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. You can 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.

Need ideas and activities for your lessons? 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 also can help with setting up bank account, finding accommodations, and offer 24/7 support for any kind of daily life issue.

--Our Mission--

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. 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. At Borderlink, there's always room for growth, both as individuals and as a team.
