Applications and recommendations are open from now until Friday February 2nd.
What do RPAs do?
- Plan various professional development activities such as workshops for the Skills Development Conferences and Work/Life Orientation.
- Liaise with the PAs and the RPA team to identify and resolve issues pertaining to JET life
- Provide direct support and advice to ALTs relating to both professional and everyday life.
