Japanese Taster for Schools Programme

Volunteer Training Day 2017

12 September 2017, London

JTS(Japanese Taster for Schools)プログラムは、国際交流基金の仲介により、英国の小・中・高校でのイベントにボランティアが訪問し、日本語を紹介するプログラムです。9月12日に無料研修会を行います


We are delighted to announce that the next Training Day for existing and prospective volunteers of our Japanese Taster for Schools (JTS) Programme will take place this September!

About the JTS Programme
Can you speak Japanese? Are you keen to promote the language to young people around the UK? If so, the Japan Foundation needs YOU!

JTS volunteers carry out school visits across the UK to introduce students at any level to the Japanese language. One of the main purposes of JTS is to give schools that do not teach Japanese the opportunity to find out what it is like to learn the language and to provide them with further information should they wish to start offering Japanese.

By joining the JTS Programme you will be a member of a UK-wide network of over 300 Japanese speakers who are keen to visit schools on a one-shot basis to carry out Japanese language tasters. JTS is as big a time commitment as you want it to be. If you are have time to spare, are keen and enthusiastic, it is a great opportunity to get some teaching experience. More information about the JTS Programme can be found here.

JTS Volunteer Training Day
Our JTS Volunteer Training Days are a great opportunity to meet other volunteers, get teaching ideas, and ask any questions you may have. Those who are not yet members of JTS but are interested in joining are also welcome to sign up for the training day. You can read about our last Training Day, held in November 2016, here.
