Gain valuable teaching experience abroad
With our roots in publishing and as the nationwide industry leader in ALT placement, Interac will place you in a local board of education area and equip you with access to the latest teaching resources. Our materials are created in-house and complement the Ministry of Education’s Course of Study.
Teach at a Japanese public school
Our teachers will usually find themselves placed in elementary and junior high schools, or on occasion high schools, often leading the lesson in the primary (or T1) teaching position. You’ll be able to get a lot of experience preparing materials and activities, actually presenting the material and working through it with students. You can expect to have as few as two or three classes in a day or as many as five. Many teachers also rotate between schools during the week which makes for a change in scenery.
A major benefit of working with Interac in a public school is the valuable international working experience you’ll take with you wherever you go. Working in a Japanese public school teaches you about the local culture, and living in Japan gives you a chance to meet other teachers from across the globe.
You’ll also notice one major difference to life as an ALT compared to the language school or eikaiwa route, and that is you’ll have your evenings and weekends to yourself for getting out and exploring the area or finding a new activity. Another is you’ll know your work schedule, including holidays, months in advance.
Interac ALTs also have the unique opportunity to be ingrained in the local community. You will not only make an impact by delivering exciting English lessons, but also outside of the classroom by participating in local events, festivals, and activities. As the door to the world for the entire community, you will get to impart valuable knowledge into people’s lives, and in turn, you also get to gain a lot of knowledge from them as well. That’s how you change lives – one person at a time.
Whether you already have experience in teaching or not, our industry-leading training program will prepare you to thrive as an ALT and help you continuously grow in your role.
