◆ Dispatch Teacher: Main Responsibilities & Duties
As a Dispatch Teacher, you will be sent to different schools throughout Japan. Other than providing support to the assigned schools, you are asked to represent Yaruki Switch Career and uphold the company standards:
・Professionalism: A dispatch teacher should maintain a high level of professionalism in their conduct, both inside and outside the classroom. This includes dressing appropriately, demonstrating respect for students, colleagues, and parents, and upholding Yaruki Switch Career standards.
・Effective Communication: Clear and effective communication with students, parents, and colleagues is essential. Dispatch teachers should be able to articulate the values, goals, and policies of Yaruki Switch Career, as well as provide timely and constructive feedback to students and maintain open lines of communication with the school director and parents.
・Positive Classroom Environment: Creating a positive and inclusive classroom environment. By fostering a supportive learning atmosphere, encouraging student engagement, and promoting respect and inclusivity, dispatch teachers demonstrate the values and mission of the company.
・Collaboration and Teamwork: Collaborating with colleagues, administrators, and staff members within the institution is important for representing the company as a team player.
Remember, representing YSC as a dispatch teacher is a continuous effort that involves maintaining professionalism, expertise, effective communication, and contributing to a positive learning environment.
Dispatch teachers are encouraged to provide students with fun and creative classes that focus on real-life conversational skills - we believe when students are having fun, they are more engaged; and when instructors are having fun, they provide the best possible lessons!
While a set curriculum and lesson plans for main activities are provided, dispatch teachers are expected to grow and expand on these foundations with their own unique and original lesson ideas; allowing ample creative freedom to personalize your teaching approach and inject passion and enthusiasm into your class.

Many rental accommodations, especially apartments, may have strict no-pet policies. It can be challenging to find pet-friendly housing, and even if found, it may limit your options significantly.
Overall, it's crucial to consider and respect the cultural and practical aspects of living and working in a foreign country before deciding to bring a pet along. It's advisable to thoroughly research the specific circumstances and requirements in Japan and consider the impact on your lifestyle and the well-being of your pet.
*Note: While we sincerely appreciate all applications, only those candidates selected for interview will be contacted.
