ENGLISH CONVERSATION TEACHERS REQUIRED.
SANYOONODA-SHI, YAMAGUCHI-PREFECTURE. JAPAN.
We are a small culture school located on the southern tip of Honshu Island (Japan), about 40 minutes by train from Shimonoseki - across the Kanmon straight from Kyushu island. Our city is called Onoda and it has a population of about 45, 000 people. We teach "New Dance" and "English Conversation." At present we have 6 English teachers on
our staff and 3 dance teachers. The dance teachers also carry out the day to day running of the school.
University and College graduates from English speaking countries are offered a monthly salary of from Yen250, 000 - 270, 000
for a maximum 98 hours monthly teaching schedule.
High school graduates from Canada, Australia and New Zealand can join us under Holiday/Work visa status and are offered a
monthly salary of from Yen220, 000 - 230, 000 for a maximum 98 hours monthly teaching schedule.
Any hours taught over and above 98 hours are classed as overtime and remunerated at the rate of Yen2, 500 per hour.
Our teachers aren't usually asked to put in office time.
Teachers who are employed by us receive from 10 to 14 days paid vacation over Christmas and the New Year (plus two days off per week and relevant Japanese National holidays). The length of this holiday depends upon the school's teaching schedules at that time.
If our teachers extend their contact by 6 months, they receive an extra 5 days paid vacation. If they extend their
contract by one year, they receive an extra 10 days paid vacation.
Requests for unpaid vacation are also taken into consideration during light workloads.
BENDA covers all "Apartment Key Money' expenses, only asking the teacher to pay his/her monthly rental costs (which are usually around Yen40, 000 to Yen55, 000 per month). We also put in a telephone line to all our teachers' apartments and provide each teacher with a small city car for both business and private use. The teacher being requested to pay the yearly tax/insurance for the vehicle (coming to around Yen4, 000 / Yen115, 000 per year respectively).
The Academy provides interest free loans for joining expenditures and a year ending bonus of Yen25, 000 towards travel costs.
The Academy covers work related accident insurance for all employees.
Our new teachers usually take over an existing apartment and therefore have the chance to purchase furniture from an outgoing teacher. We provide an interest free loan of up to Yen75, 000 towards the purchase of such furniture.
We have no restrictions regarding our teachers socialising with their students, so there's always a good opportunity to learn about Japanese culture and study the Japanese language.
If you'd like to hear a little more about us, perhaps we could talk together over the telephone. We can be reached at:-
We presently have job openings in January/February of 2006 and others later in the year.
