The Japan Foundation, Manila, is looking for local-based Japanese-language Lecturers to handle the Japanese-Language Course for JPEPA Nurse & Care Worker Candidates (Batch 16).
◎ Features of the course
Lecturers will be asked to handle a special intensive course of 7 months for nurse & care worker candidates who will work in Japan under the Japan-Philippines Economic Partnership Agreement (JPEPA). This course has been designed primarily to enable the learners to use the Japanese language at their workplaces, such as hospitals and caregiving facilities, and also for them to learn how to adapt to a culture and society different from their own, namely Japan. Lecturers are expected to teach only in Japanese (Direct Method) and to encourage learners to explore and discover new things during the lessons instead of just providing grammatical rules and drills, thus helping the learners attain autonomous learning, whether at study or work, upon their arrival in Japan.
◎ We require lecturers to be:
■ Cooperative —— a lecturer who can work with Japanese and other Filipino lecturers in a team.
■ Flexible ———— a lecturer who can respond accordingly to the learners’ actual needs and readiness, not just relying on their own experience.
■ Open-minded — a lecturer capable of trying different ways to teach.
◎ Required Skills:
■ Nihongo Proficiency (non-Japanese applicants) — JLPT N1, N2, or N3 level
■ Basic IT Skills — Zoom, etc.
◎ Required Teaching Environment:
■ Stable and Fast Internet — Wifi speed of at least 15 Mbps
■ A PC/laptop — with sufficient specs to conduct online classes
◎Other requirements for non-Filipino applicants.
◎ Details of Employment:
・From Monday to Friday (3 to 6 sessions/day)
・Working days are negotiable.
・8:00 ~ 15:50 (50min × 3 to 6 sessions/day and team meeting (once a week))
・Standard pay scale of The Japan Foundation, Manila
Documents to be submitted
1．Form-1: JPEPA Lecturer Application Form, attached with passport-size photo (4.5×3.5cm)
2．Form-2: Japanese-language Teaching Experience Application Form
3．Photocopy of the JLPT Certificate (non-Japanese applicants)

EVENT DATE: 1 June 2023
The Japan Foundation, Manila is pleased to announce that it has successfully conducted the “Preparatory Japanese-Language Training for Nurse and Certified Care Worker Candidates” under the Japan-Philippines Economic Partnership Agreement (JPEPA). The training was held online and partially face to face by two organizations, the Nihongo Center Foundation Inc. (NCF, Manila) and The Japan Foundation, Manila from November 16, 2022 and will soon come to an end on June 1, 2023. The current participants of the 15th batch who will complete the training consist of 15 nurse candidates and 216 certified care worker candidates.
The candidates have obtained the basic knowledge and usage of the Japanese language and deepened their understanding of the Japanese people, society, and culture. They have also been trained for “autonomous learning” – they learned how to plan and review their study and get themselves into the habit of learning, to continue the study beyond the program.
The candidates will undergo another 6-month training of the language after they arrive in Japan; then, they will be assigned to hospitals and nursing homes across the country. Building up their practical experiences there, they will consequently take the national examination for Japan’s nurse or certified care worker.
To mark and celebrate the occasion, a “Closing Ceremony” will be held at 9:00 am on Thursday – 1 June 2023 online (Kindly inform us if you intend to attend. We will share the zoom detail).
For details / clarifications on the aforesaid training program, please get in touch with The Japan Foundation, Manila – 23/F Pacific Star Bldg., Makati Ave., Makati City (telephone # 8811-61-54 / fax # 8811-61-53; email@example.com / website:www.jfmo.org.ph).
The Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) will be held on December 3, 2023, in Manila, Cebu, Davao, and Cagayan De Oro.
