The JET Programme

The Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme (JET) is why we are here. It is a Japanese government initiative that brings the world to Japan, as ALTs (Assistant Language Teacher), SEAs (Sports Education Advisor) or CIRs (Coordinators for International Relations). Most participants were ALTs, sent to kindergartens, elementary schools, junior and senior high schools, while CIRs work in local government or board of education offices in their assigned areas.

During the participant’s tenure, they get to interact with the local community and experience the culture and country. To say it was one of the greatest experiences of our lives might sound over the top… but it would be fairly accurate. :)
