British Council: Project-Based Hourly-Paid Junior High / Elementary School Teacher (Koto Ku, Tokyo) (12/6)

Teach at Junior High schools in Koto Ku Tokyo during semester times only. Weekday mornings and afternoons during semester time only. Average of 17-20 teaching hours per week during semester time.


Job details: 

The British Council is looking for qualified and experienced teachers to join our offsite teaching team at Junior High and/or Elementary Schools in Koto Ku Tokyo. You will teach weekday mornings and afternoons during semester time only. Please note that you will be paid by the teaching hour, and during semester time only. A typical weekly schedule during semester time (17-20 hours of teaching): 

Mon: Variable schedule between 8.30am and 3.30pm
Tues: Variable schedule between 8.30am and 3.30pm
Wed: Variable schedule between 8.30am and 3.30pm
Thurs: Variable schedule between 8.30am and 3.30pm
Fri: Variable schedule between 8.30am and 3.30pm

Your actual schedule each day will depend upon the timetable in the school. There is no requirement to stay at school each day after you have completed teaching, any planning meetings and any preparation work. Daily working patterns are therefore variable depending upon the day of the week and on one day a teacher may teach 5 periods and have a planning meeting and therefore be at a school for the full 8.30am-3.30pm but on another the teaching load may be much lighter with a teacher at the school for perhaps 2 lessons and a meeting, working from 8.30am to 12:45pm

This role is only open to applicants who have current permission to live and work in Japan. Previous experience teaching at a Japanese Junior High and/or Elementary School is desirable. 

Hourly-paid scale:

4,400 yen/hour for teachers with a CELTA or equivalent 
4,900 yen/hour for teachers with a DELTA or equivalent 

- Payment for preparation for lessons and marking is included in the hourly teaching rate above and will not be paid separately. 

- You will receive a project-completion bonus equivalent to JPY 700 per actual hour taught, provided all outlined standards are met. 

In addition to teaching, post holders will work alongside a team of other British Council teachers, and are expected to work closely with them in lesson planning and materials development. Post holders also need to undertake duties related to assessment and record keeping. Post holders will be paid by the teaching hour for the fixed-term dates of the project and will also receive a project-completion bonus upon successful completion of the contract. 
Prior to commencement of teaching, successful candidates will undertake a paid 30-hour orientation and training programme across 7 days. Payment for this will be at the British Council administration rate.

The Koto-ku programme has a regular in-service training programme, with monthly hour-long training sessions. Attendance at these is expected and will be paid at the hourly administrative rate.

Interviews are likely to be held one week after closing date.
