JET (Japan Exchange & Teaching) Programme

This programme enables local authorities to employ foreign youth as Assistant English Language Teachers (ALT’s) for Japanese students from Elementary to High School Level. The Programme began in 1987 with cooperation from governments of participating countries. Since then, over 70,000 people from 75 countries have participated in the Programme, making it one of the largest cultural exchange programs in the world! In addition to being proficient in the English language, prospective ALT’s should be interested in Japan’s rich culture, and should also be willing to promote international exchange at the community level. Nationals of Trinidad & Tobago are eligible to apply for this program.
