Japan Group Tour Programme for UK Head Teachers 2015

Venue: Japan
Visit website

Event Date: 24/10/2015 - 31/10/2015

As part of the Japan Foundation’s Primary Japanese Campaign to support and encourage primary schools teaching Japanese language, we will be giving 20 primary head teachers the opportunity to take a study trip to Japan from Saturday 24 October to Saturday 31 October on the Japan Group Tour Programme for UK Head Teachers 2015.

The programme will include Japanese cultural experiences to help deepen your understanding of Japan, as well as visits to Japanese school to observe the Japanese education system first-hand. It will also provide an excellent opportunity to network with teachers in Japan, as well as with other head teachers in the UK whose schools are enthusiastic about Japanese. The Japan Foundation will cover all travel, accommodation and meal expenses.

Applications are invited from headteachers in primary schools fitting one of the following criteria:

  • Primary schools that are interested in introducing Japanese onto their main curriculum.
  • Primary schools that are interesting in providing extracurricular activities (Japanese clubs)
  • Primary schools that already teach Japanese that would like to share their ideas with other schools in their area and spread the teaching of Japanese to other schools

For more information and to register your interest visit the Japan Foundation website.

Application deadline: 15 July 2015.
