About the JET Programme

The JET Programme seeks to enhance internationalisation in Japan by promoting mutual understanding between Japan and other nations. Specifically, the Programme aims to enhance foreign language education in Japan, and to promote international exchange at the local level through fostering ties between Japanese and foreign youth.

The Programme offers university graduates and young professionals the opportunity to serve in local government organisations as well as public and private primary, junior and senior high schools. The JET Programme is conducted under the auspices of local government in Japan, and cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, the Ministry of Education, Culture Sports, Science and Technology, and the Council of Local Authorities for International Relations.
