Opportunity for Canadian JET:
My name is Cael Husband; I look after the JET Programme at the Embassy of Canada in Tokyo.
We received a request from Kanazawa Technical College (one of Japan’s select technical schools with programs from Grade 10 through 2nd year university focusing on STEM fields).
They’ve just built a brand new campus that will deliver courses in English, and had asked if we might be able to help them find some Canadian teachers for their high school students. (They have teachers from a few other countries already and would like to bring in some Canadians.)
Ideal candidates would have a teaching certificate with a focus on Math, Science, Physics, or Biology; an M.Ed would be preferred. No Japanese required.
It would be for a 3-year contract; compensation would be around $50-55K (plus subsidized housing). It’s a brand-new facility with an on-site hot spring nestled against the mountains, and sounds like it would be an incredible opportunity for someone with JET experience who would be looking at options for staying in Japan.
If you know of anyone who would fit this profile and might be interested, please feel free to have them contact me and I can put them in touch with the school.
