• Industry leading training
• Professional and reliable support
• Top-quality educational resources and materials
• Steady full-salary, paid every month on-time, year-round

• They should be charismatic and enthusiastic, flexible and culturally sensitive, and motivated to go the extra mile to provide a positive communicative experience for students.
• We would also prefer applicants who have previously spent some time studying or working in Japan.
• As many ALT positions do require driving, applicants who can or would be able to drive in Japan on either a Japanese license or International Driving Permit are preferred.
ALTs work in public schools assisting Japanese teachers, helping to provide enjoyable and energetic lessons, and interacting with the students both inside and outside the classroom. Working as an ALT is a great opportunity to improve your Japanese language ability through cooperation with Japanese staff, to experience and appreciate cultural differences, and most importantly, to be positively involved with the development and well-being of Japanese kindergarten, elementary and junior high school students.
ALTIA CENTRAL enjoys an excellent reputation, positive relationships with Boards of Education, and is respected by the English teaching community in Japan, which both our ALTs and management staff work very hard to maintain. Our contracts are largely based in central Japan, mostly in Aichi, Gifu, and Shizuoka prefectures; with a strong presence in Okayama and Hiroshima; a number of contracts in Shiga, Mie, Nagano, and Fukui; as well as some positions in Osaka and the greater Kansai area. We DO NOT however have any positions in or near the greater Tokyo area.
The Application process:
Once we receive your resume and cover letter, we will reply to qualified applicants via email. Those that then pass our initial screening process will be invited to an interview. Unfortunately, due to the current conditions caused by the coronavirus, we will be forgoing our normal face to face interviews and instead resort to a Skype-only system for all applicants this spring.
Typically, we interview on an ongoing basis in our head office in Nagoya and at our branch office in Osaka. We also travel to other cities such as Sapporo, Sendai, Tokyo, Shizuoka, Okayama, Hiroshima, and Fukuoka for weekend interviews. However, due to the current conditions caused by the coronavirus, we will be forgoing our normal face to face interviews and instead resort to a Skype-only system. We hope to resume face to face interviews again soon, once it is safe to do so.
Successful applicants will need to be available for a full 5-day Orientation/Training session before starting in school. If you are interested in applying and have the work ethic and enthusiasm to represent our values while making a real difference in Japan's public schools, please visit our Recruiting website for further details about ALTIA CENTRAL.
