The JET program (meaning Japan Exchange and Teaching – Programme) is an official Japanese Government scheme aiming to improve foreign language teaching in schools and to promote international understanding. The programme was established in 1987, with 848 participants from four countries. Since then, the number of participants has increased significantly, with other 4000 graduates from around 40 different countries that are currently participating.
One of Howden schools teachers, Mrs Roberts, was part of this initiative when it first started back in 1987, and now, due to their 30th anniversary this year the British-Japanese Parliamentry Group, joined with Lord Brookman they are hosting a reception on Thursday 16th March in the Cholmondeley Room and Terrace at the House of Lords.
There are two roles that one can get when joining the JET programme, the first being the ALT (Assistant Language Teacher) or a CIR (Co-ordinator of International Relationships).
