Are you looking for fun and excitement in your teaching career?

Are you interested in working in a colorful, lively part of Osaka?
If so, we have the ultimate opportunity for you!
Borderlink is currently seeking Assistant Language Teachers (ALTs) for elementary and junior high-level positions in the city of Sakai, Osaka Prefecture. These positions start from April 2020, but we encourage all those interested to apply as soon as possible to secure a spot in one of the best parts of Osaka!
[About the Position]
ALTs work in public elementary and junior high schools, teaching alongside Japanese teachers. As an ALT, you become a part of your students' lives as you help and guide them through an entirely new world that's second nature to you- English. You'll not only teach lessons, plan activities and make materials; you'll make the language "real" by interacting with students throughout the day to help them actively apply what they learn in class. Ideal ALT candidates are flexible with their teaching style and want to make a positive impact on the lives of the students.
● Location: Sakai City, Osaka
● Contract Period: April 2020 to March 2021
● Contract Type: Monthly / Daily
● Level: Elementary and junior high schools
● Working Hours: Between 8:00 am to 16:30 pm
● All schools in this position are accessible via public transportation.
● Monthly positions come with enrollment in social insurance (health insurance and pension), making this excellent for those looking at staying in Japan long-term.
[Daily Positions Also Available!]
We also have some daily positions in Sakai, at a rate of 11,000 yen to 13,000 yen/day. Please inquire when applying.
We provide initial training before you start and continuing training throughout the year. We also supply you with teaching materials and access to our library of educational resources (worksheets, flashcards, etc.) With all these tools in your kit, you'll be able to build onto what you've learned elsewhere to become a highly-valued and experienced teacher.
Other benefits include:
● Visa assistance (where applicable)
● Help with relocation & finding housing
● Round-the-clock support
● Work regular school hours and enjoy free evenings, weekends and national holidays, plus school vacation periods.
● ALTs will also be provided a yearly calendar to help manage their other commitments.
We're looking for highly-motivated, outgoing, and personable individuals who can commit to the full academic year and see the contract through to the end. This not only benefits your schools and students, but also helps your fellow teachers in their own future prospects in the area you're all based. Part of being an ALT is being a team player and supporting each other. You may feel that you carry a lot of responsibility at times, but know that you're never alone and have a network of support looking out for you.
In addition to those stated above, successful applicants must also have the following:
● Conversational Japanese abilities
● Strong verbal and written communication skills in English
● One or more of the following:
A) a teaching license from your home country
B) a TEFL/TESOL certificate
C) over 1 year of teaching experience in Japan at the elementary, junior high school or high school level
[About Sakai City, Osaka]
Located just south of Osaka City proper, Sakai is one of the oldest and most important seaports in Japan. It is also the largest suburb of Osaka and the fourteenth most populous city in Japan. About 45 minutes from Osaka station and the heart of the city, it's the perfect place for those who want to live in Osaka with a little more green in their neighborhood, as Sakai boasts some spectacular parks. The city is well-known for its iconic keyhole-shaped burial mounds, or kofun. The iconic Daisen Kofun is a must-see attraction for any resident or tourist. Once known for swords, Sakai is now famous for the quality of its kitchen cutlery, and even for the cuisine-rich Kansai region, the city is a foodie's paradise. A city rich in history and culture, Sakai is all the best Osaka has to offer in one convenient location.
Borderlink is well-known and respected among schools and boards of education. We provide a level of training and after-placement support unparalleled among ALT companies, including relocation assistance and visa sponsorship. Recently we've been expanding, and are looking to create a strong roster of ALTs across the Kansai area. 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.
