Have you ever thought about becoming a teacher in Japan? If so, this is your chance to take the first step towards a career as an Assistant Language Teacher (ALT) with Borderlink. We're looking for energetic and adventurous individuals to join our team and work in elementary and junior high schools across Japan starting from April 2019.

As an ALT, you will get to experience Japanese culture in a unique and exciting way. You'll interact with children and adults on a regular basis, sharing your insight and knowledge with them from the start of school to the end of every day. You'll get to try new things and participate in clubs, festivals, and activities you may have never thought possible. You'll become part of something important as you help enrich the community of your schools and shape the futures of your students.

At Borderlink, we believe that the role of the ALT is to make English real, taking it beyond being just another subject they learn from a textbook and into something fun and valuable. Not only are we teachers, but we're also cultural ambassadors, and our interactions with our students goes beyond the classroom.

Along with the Japanese teachers, we talk with students in the halls or between classes. We eat lunch with them, play with them during recess, and join them in cleaning time at school. As you teach them, you'll also learn from them, and enjoy a chapter of your life that will stay with you forever.

Highly respected among boards of education and schools throughout Japan, Borderlink is dedicated to helping you write that chapter and gain the skills to become the very best teacher you can be.

Whether you are new to teaching or a seasoned veteran, we will help you develop and polish your skills. We provide you with extensive training prior to placement, and will continue to do so throughout your time working with us.

As ALTs work at public schools in Japan, applicants should have some proficiency in the Japanese language, or a strong desire to learn it. We will do our best to help beginners, as well as more experienced speakers, grow and strengthen their abilities.

Our support staff is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to assist you as you get settled into the job. We provide help with immigration, finding apartments, banking, relocation issues, and getting acclimated to the Japanese school environment and general daily life.

We are here to help ensure your success - but we can't do it alone. That's why we need you!

Thank you for your interest in Borderlink. As we do have a limited number of positions, we encourage you to apply now!
