      Japan Exchange & Teaching Programme (JET)

      ** For the 2020 Japan Exchange & Teaching Programme (JET) Programme, Barbadian applicants must submit their documents to the Embassy of Japan in Barbados.

      This programme enables local authorities to employ foreign youth as Assistant English Language Teachers (ALT’s) for Japanese students from Elementary to High School Level. Currently, the program invites approximately 5,700 participants from around 57 countries each year, making it one of the largest cultural exchange programs in the world!


      In addition to being proficient in the English language, prospective ALT’s should be interested in Japan’s rich culture, and should also be willing to promote international exchange at the community level.
      Nationals of Trinidad & Tobago and Barbados are eligible to apply for this program.
