The Japan Foundation, Manila (JFM) announces the launch conduct of the project “Preparatory Japanese-Language Training for the Filipino Candidates of Nurses and Certified Care Workers” under the Japan – Philippines Economic Partnership Agreement (JPEPA). The 16th batch training will start with 247 (provisional) candidates which consists of nurse candidates and certified care worker candidates. The training will be held online by 2 organizations: the Nihongo Center Foundation Inc. (NCF, Manila) and The Japan Foundation, Manila. The program will be for six (6) months – until May 24, 2024.
The objectives of the training program are to have the candidates obtain the basic knowledge and usage of Japanese language and study specific vocabulary and essential expressions for nursing and caretaking / caregiving. In addition, the candidates will be given lectures on Japan – general life culture and will further learn how to acquire the habit of autonomous learning so that they can continue to study the Japanese language beyond the program.
Upon the completion of the 6-month training program in the Philippines, the candidates will undergo another 6-months of training program on the Japanese language training in Japan. Thereafter, they will be assigned to hospitals and caregiving facilities spread all over Japan, and building up on their experiences, they will take the national examination for nurse or certified care worker in Japan.
