Applications for the 2024 JET Programme are expected to open in September 2023.

Aiming primarily to promote grass-roots internationalisation at the local level, the JET Programme invites university graduates from around the world to participate in internationalisation initiatives and be involved in foreign language education at Japan’s local government offices, Boards of Education, elementary schools, junior high schools, and senior high schools.

Currently, approximately 1,000 local public organisations (contracting organisations), including 45 prefectures and 18 designated cities employ JET Programme participants.
