English Teaching Positions in Japan starting Fall 2016 Through Spring/Summer 2017!
Date 2016-08-27 20:08:52 Location : Asia:Japan
Interac Co., Ltd is seeking skilled native-level English speakers currently residing in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan to fill elementary, junior high, and high school ALT (Assistant Language Teacher) positions across Japan starting Fall 2017, as well as for future positions in Spring 2017 and Summer 2017.
Working as an ALT, you will enrich the lives of children by sharing your knowledge of English and communication skills and giving insight into other cultures. Your job is two-fold: language instructor and cultural ambassador. These two aspects are inseparable, and you, as a successful Interac ALT, will become an expert in both. You can expect to teach classes on your own, with a Japanese teacher present to help manage the classroom.
>>What we are looking for
Other than having the mental aptitude and the desire to accept the challenge of living and working overseas, before submitting an application to become an Interac teacher, you must:
? Be a native-level speaker of English.
? Have acquired an education delivered in English for at least 12 years.
? Have graduated or about to graduate from a university with at least a bachelor’s degree (in any subject).
? Be professional in all aspects of behavior-a team player, flexible, cheerful, and energetic.
While not required, it helps your chances if you:
? Hold a driver’s license.
? Have prior teaching experience.
? Have a teaching qualification?e.g., CELTA, TEFL, etc.
? Have the experience of studying a second language at school or university.
? Can speak some basic Japanese.
Each successful ALT undergoes a thorough application and screening process.

>> The Life and Work of an ALT
If you pass our screening process and receive a job offer you will complete a comprehensive initial orientation and training program in Japan before going on to your assignment. Regardless of your prior teaching experience, we will equip you with the practical skills you need to be an effective Interac ALT. We also offer an ongoing training program so that you can further develop your skills.
Interac ALTs generally work Monday to Friday, with assignments scheduled between the hours of 8 am and 5 pm. From time to time, you may be required to work outside of these hours for things like school events.
Prior to arriving in Japan, an apartment is arranged on your behalf as close as possible to where you will be working. The apartments are intended to accommodate one person. Interac will assist in the connection of utilities and associated services.
Our staff will also assist with securing the proper visa and other travel documentation necessary for you to live and work in Japan.
