2023-2024 Positions:

Art & Design Teacher (Part-time)

Aligned with the recommendations of the International Task Force on Child Protection, we hold ourselves to a high standard of effective recruiting practices with specific attention to child protection.

If there are no positions that match your background, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t apply! We’re always looking for great educators. That means people whose main motivation is not simply a paycheck or an easy work visa for their brief stint in Japan. We’re a young, vibrant school with an awesome team and lots of passion. So if you’re a progressive educator who cares about your craft and wants to convey that passion to others (especially the students), then we’re looking for you.


Applicants should be someone who:

  • believes that education is not a spectator sport, but an experience that should be relevant, meaningful, and memorable
  • reads sources, inside and outside of your area of expertise, in order to expand your knowledge as much as possible
  • has an open mind, and is willing to adapt to a potentially different work environment (and way of doing things)
  • demonstrates a passion for Japan and its culture, and is willing to be a responsible ambassador for your country and our school
  • is interested in the psychology of learning, child psychology, second language acquisition, philosophy, and/or other related domains
  • loves interacting with children and teenagers, but is also willing to apply discipline consistent with the school’s approach
  • can not only motivate students to learn, but teach them how to learn
  • understands that the daily operation of a school is hard work, and is willing to put in the extra time and effort to help out beyond simply planning and teaching lessons
  • has a certified teaching degree or teaching certification in the subject of instruction
  • has obtained a valid criminal background check from passport issuing country and (if different from passport issuing country) current country of residence
