2020 is coming soon, and it promises to be an exciting time to be in Japan. Are you looking for a way in to this bold new era? Have you ever thought about teaching English as a way to experience Japan for yourself? Then you'll want to keep reading!
As an Assistant Language Teacher (ALT) supported by Borderlink, Inc, you'll get to enjoy a new world of fun and excitement while also giving back to the community and to the next generation. It's a fulfilling and enriching job, and we'd like to offer you the chance to join our team.
We've been in the business of English education for close to 20 years. In that time, we have grown and changed a lot as a company, but we have always held true to our mission statement: We're here to help you believe in your possibility.
Many past ALTs speak highly of their experience with us, and we often have former employees return or recommend friends and even family to us. But lately we've also been expanding, and with that comes a need for fresh faces and new ideas- and that's where you come in!
As we keep moving forward to become the most well-respected ALT recruiter in Japan, we'll continually strive to support our teachers' needs as much as we can. We value the many dedicated ALTs who've been with us through the years- as we grow, we hope we can continue to help them as much as they've helped us.
What does it take to be an ALT? The basics are native-level English ability, a university degree (Bachelor's or higher) and being in good health of course.
Personality is a major factor; Friendly, outgoing and personable individuals, even if they have no formal teaching experience, can become the greatest teachers.
Being able to commit to a yearlong contract is essential. Plus, we want to keep great teachers around! It can be a challenging job at times, but it is always an incredibly rewarding one too. The schools our ALTs work at want the best, and we'll help you be the best.
Borderlink's ALTs work mainly in public elementary and junior high schools, teaching alongside Japanese teachers and working regular school hours. This means free evenings, weekends and national holidays, plus school vacation periods.
To assist your ALT career, we offer seasonal training, access to teaching materials, help with managing visa/housing/banking issues, and around-the-clock support. There are even opportunities for growth for veterans, such as becoming an area facilitator or joining our administrative team.
If this sounds like exactly what you've been looking for, we're looking for you!! We are now seeking enthusiastic, adventurous and dedicated individuals to join us in schools starting from spring 2020. We invite you to apply now, and take the first step towards an exciting new year.
Thank you for your interest in Borderlink. Let's find your future together!
