Making an impact outside the classroom
I was given the honour of making a Keynote presentation for the prefectural JET Programme Skills Development Conference one year to about 200 JET participants. As a former JET participant 20 years earlier, it was a special experience.
"CLAIR and the three Japanese ministries involved in the administration of the JET Programme, in addition to local authorities throughout Japan, sponsor and host a variety of conferences and seminars for JET participants each year.. Through this conference and others, CLAIR and the three ministries aim to give JET participants the opportunity to build on their work skills and become better, more effective and successful JET participants."
