About the JET Programme

The Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Programme is administered through the collaboration of Japan’s local
government authorities, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA), the
Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), and the Council of Local Authorities for International
Relations (CLAIR).

Aiming primarily to promote grass-roots internationalisation at the local level, the JET Programme invites young, collegeeducated
individuals from around the world to participate in international exchange work and be involved in foreign language
education at Japan’s local government offices, boards of education, and schools.
The JET Programme has grown significantly over its 30 year history, with the number of participating countries growing from
four to forty, and the number of participants from 848 to 4,952. Since its establishment, about 65,000 people from 65
countries have participated in the JET Programme, creating one of the largest international alumni networks in the world.

About the Participating Job-seekers
