ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT/TEAM 

The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. We create friendly knowledge and understanding between the people of the UK and other countries. We do this by making a positive contribution to the UK and the countries we work with – changing lives by creating opportunities, building connections and engendering trust.

WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING AND WHY
The British Council is looking for qualified and experienced teachers to join our offsite teaching team at a Japanese university in the west of Tokyo (Kunitachi). From April 2020 to January 2021 you will teach weekday afternoons and evenings over two 13-week semesters. You will not be required to teach during the summer break between semesters (late July to early September). Please note that you will be paid by the teaching hour, and during semester time only. Weekly schedule during semester time (17.5 hours of teaching)

These roles are only open to applicants who have current permission to live and work in Japan. Previous experience teaching at a Japanese university is an essential requirement.

In addition to teaching, post holders will work alongside a team of other British Council teachers and are expected to work closely with them in lesson planning and materials development. Post holders also need to undertake duties related to assessment and record keeping and be available for a one-hour meeting each week. Post holders will be paid by the teaching hour for the fixed-term dates of the project and will also receive a project-completion bonus upon successful completion of the contract.

WHAT IS INTERESTING ABOUT IT
You can take pride in the fact that you will be part of a team that enables the British Council to meet its objectives and gives all our customers an exceptional experience.

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
If you possess Cambridge CELTA/Trinity CertTESOL or equivalent and Undergraduate/University degree this is the opportunity for you. You will bring with you 2 years post-certificate experience and full mastery of English across all 4 skills. Previous experience teaching at a Japanese university is a added advantage.
