Applications are now open for the grant provided by CLAIR for re-contracting JETs (both ALTs and CIRs are eligible) who wish to improve their English teaching skills by taking an online course to get certified in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) or TESOL (Teaching English to Students of Other Languages).
The grant is ￥15,000 towards the course.
Application deadline: May 25
For the application and more details about eligibility and the grant can be found here
We highly recommend JETs take advantage of this opportunity, especially those who are interested in teaching English after JET as many other companies/countries desire a TEFL or TESOL certification.
