South Africans depart for Japan on the JET Programme

32 South African youth together with others from about 44 countries will have the opportunity to teach English in Japan. The Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Programme is a scheme of the Government of Japan aiming to improve foreign language teaching in schools and to promote international exchange at the local level. The Programme was established in 1987 has since attracted more than 40 000 young graduates to Japan.

The JET Programme was first introduced to South Africa in 1997, with 5 participants who worked in Japan between 1 and 3 years. Over the past 17 years the number of South African participants has steadily increased, bringing the current total number to 566.

In his speech at the reception, Ambassador Shigeyuki Hiroki (pictured centre), congratulated the departing JET participants and wished them well.

Ambassador Hiroki added that the JETS are expected to be a bridge between South Africa and Japan, and expressed his delight that this year South Africa and Japan celebrate 106 years of bilateral relations.
