Interac Group has nearly 3,000 teachers in more than 2.1 million English classes in over 7,000 elementary, junior high, and high schools throughout Japan. Let’s be honest – sometimes things don’t always go to plan. That’s where you would come in…
When the Interac Group ALT who is normally assigned to a school is absent for a long period of time, we send in the Relief Teachers. These are our super teachers who are ready to step in a moment’s notice to save the day, week, month, or in some cases the year.
We are looking for teachers with experience in elementary, junior high, and high school classrooms, and who are extremely flexible to enter a potentially high-pressure environment and deal professionally with uncertainty. Travel and accommodation expenses are covered by the Interac branch to which they are assigned.
This kind of work takes a special kind of teacher but it is a great opportunity for someone who wants to explore more of Japan and has a ‘see where this road takes me’ attitude. One week you could be going to school by helicopter to a far-off island (no joke) and the very next week you could be commencing a three-month assignment near a ski resort.
Regardless, Relief Teachers maintain a healthy work-life balance as they generally work from Monday to Friday with classes scheduled between 8 am and 5 pm. From time to time you may be required to work outside these hours/days in order to travel for deployment. Otherwise, you are able to enjoy weekends and national holidays as well as breaks in winter, spring, and summer.
Due to the varying nature of the assignments, it is expected that our Relief Teachers will be experienced teacher who can deliver a meaningful lesson in elementary, junior high or high schools with little information or preparation. A driver’s license that allows them to drive in Japan is also required.
