What is the JET programme?

The JET (Japan Exchange and Teaching) Programme is a Japanese government sponsored exchange programme that seeks to promote mutual understanding between Japan and other nations. The programme aims to encourage international exchange through fostering ties between Japanese and foreign youth.
The JET programme offers New Zealand citizens who hold a university degree or teaching qualification opportunities to serve in local government organizations as a Coordinator for International Relations (CIR) or teach at primary, junior high and senior high schools as an Assistant Language Teacher (ALT).
Come along to one of the information sessions below and find out more about participating in the world’s largest youth exchange programme from former JET participants.
