Hi I'm a Teacher With Experience & Level 5 Qualification. I am Very Interested in Working in Japan...

A Good Teacher

I have been an English teacher for over fifteen years in England. I have a Cert Ed qualification and a Level 5 English Specialism.
I am very interested in teaching and working in Japan but am unsure as to whether my qualifications and experience would be enough.

I visited Japan last year on holiday and loved the culture and the whole way of life. I would be happy to teach pupils of any age.
I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

English Teaching Jobs in Japan & Good as Gold
by: John

Hi Claire,

With your obvious and enviable qualifications you are as good as gold. You have a native speaker passport, level 5 TEFL certification and the cherry on top is your major in education.
You could quite easily enter Japan with a landing permit. This will give you 90 days to find work.

With Your credentials you could find work very quickly. Others without the deep experience base like you have to "settle" for entry level work. You don't. Usually coming over on a tourist visa is a bit risky however this doesn't apply to you for previously stated reasons.

If you wanted to play it safe, you could use a recruiter and line up the work from England. If you go this route shoot for high $ jobs from private academies and/ or university work. Any recruiter would be happy to line up work for you. (Think of it from their perspective, it's an easy sale for them - generally the schools they work with pay them their commission.)

Hiring season is just around the corner so timing is on your side as well.

Good luck!
