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 by 2 organizations; the Nihongo Center Foundation Inc. (NCF, Manila) and The Japan Foundation, Manila from March 3, 2021, and will soon come to an end on August 26. The current participants of the 13th batch who will complete the training consist of 10 nurse candidates and 204 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 so that they can continue the study beyond the program.
The candidates will undergo another 6-month training in 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 a nurse or certified care worker of Japan.
To mark and celebrate the occasion, a “Closing Ceremony” will be held at 9:00 am on Thursday – August 26 online (Kindly inform us if you intend to attend. We will share the zoom detail).
