Assistant Language Teacher (ALT) participants are engaged in language instruction in local boards of education or public junior and senior high schools. Coordinator for International Relations (CIR) participants are engaged in internationalization activities, and are placed in offices of local authorities or related organizations. Sports Exchange Advisors (SEA) promote international exchange activities through certain designated sports, and are generally placed in sporting facilities or boards of education. Applicants must possess a bachelor's degree and have intermediate to low-advanced level Japanese language skills. It is desirable that participants are adaptable and have a positive interest in Japan. For more detailed eligibility information and application deadlines, please see JET's website.
