ALT: Assistant Language Teachers (ALT) account for the highest percentage of JETs. ALTs work in elementary, junior high, or high schools, and sometimes also visit special needs or technical schools. ALTs support Japanese teachers in the classroom, and their duties largely consist of creating games, tests, and worksheets, as well as finding creative ways to promote English proficiency and intercultural learning.
CIR: Coordinators for International Relations (CIR) are required to have an advanced level of Japanese proficiency, and often work in local government offices as liaisons between Japan and other countries. CIR responsibilities vary from position to position, but often include translation, working with international envoys and exchange groups, and occasionally teaching English.
