JET Programme Pre-Departure Orientation and Farewell Reception (5 August, 2023)

2023 JET Departure
On 5 August 2023, a Pre-Departure Orientation and Farewell Reception was held at the Crowne Plaza Auckland to farewell 28 participants of the JET Programme(The Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme) heading off to Japan.

At the reception, which was held for the first time in three years, Consul-General Matsui offered the participants some words of encouragement, expressing his hopes for their future activities, as JET programme participants have an important role to play in the strengthening of positive relations between Japan and New Zealand such as the promotion of Japanese language education.

After completing an orientation in Tokyo, the JET Programme participants will travel to schools around Japan to start working as Assistant Language Teachers (ALTs) .
