THe JET Programme

The Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme (JET Programme) 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 are 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.
