An ALT’s work in public schools centers around creating positive interactions with the students both inside and outside the classroom and helping to provide enjoyable and energetic lessons. ALTs also develop and maintain a positive and supportive professional relationship with Japanese teachers by assisting with various tasks during the school year. ALTs will experience prolonged periods of standing, walking, and stair climbing. ALTs will also be encouraged to perform high energy movements such as running and playing with students. To help you find success in this role, our ALTs are frequently evaluated throughout the year based on their lesson’s clarity, how supportive they are, and the overall atmosphere they help to create in the classroom. We are dedicated to helping our ALTs grow and improve for their future success by offering ongoing advice, feedback, and more.
Working as an ALT is a great opportunity to improve your Japanese language ability, experience and appreciate cultural differences, and most importantly, to be positively involved with the development and well-being of Japanese students.
—The Application Process—
Once we receive your resume and cover letter, we will only reply to qualified applicants via email. Those that pass our subsequent screening questionnaire will then be invited to an interview. Unfortunately, due to the current conditions caused by the coronavirus, we will be forgoing our normal face-to-face interviews and instead temporarily resort to a Skype-only system for all applicants.
Successful applicants will need to be available for a full 4-day Orientation/Training session before starting in school. If you are interested in applying, please visit our Recruiting website for further details about ALTIA CENTRAL.
