Learning and going to workshops like this one is one of the best ways to improve your teaching career in Japan.
Going to professional development events in Japan is one of the most under-used ways to get job opportunities that you won’t find out about any other way. By going to workshops like The Japan Charity Autism Conference, not only can you learn more about how to help your students, but you’ll also prove to employers that you care. This is how you separate yourself from the pack of teachers who just came here to live in Japan, and prove that you are worth paying a higher salary, giving greater benefits and being treated like a real teacher.
The workshop they will be doing is called The Japan Charity Autism Conference, and it’s a joint effort between TAIP and Autism Partnership. They are bringing two experts in the field of Autism to Japan for a free one day workshop – teachers taking the time to come to events like this show that they are passionate and ready to face the challenge of being a real committed and respected teacher.
