      Print View | PDF

      The Japan Foundation, Manila is looking for Filipino Japanese-language Lecturers to handle the Japanese-language Course for JPEPA Nurse & Care Worker Candidates.

      ■  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 especially for the purpose of enabling the learners to use Japanese-language at their work places such as hospitals and care giving 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:

      1.    Cooperative – a lecturer who can work with Japanese and/or other Filipino lecturers as a team.

      2.    Flexible – a lecturer who can respond accordingly to the learners’ actual needs and readiness not just relying on his/her own experience.

      3.    Open-minded – a lecturer who is capable of trying different ways to teach.
