Winter 2013 Surveys

In order to represent your needs, opinions, and suggestions to the sponsors of the JET Programme, National AJET is currently conducting the following three surveys to assess various aspects of the JET Programme and consider how they may be improved. Please take the time to complete these surveys so that your AJET National Council may better serve your interests at the 2013 Winter Opinion Exchange meetings with the three Ministries and CLAIR in December this year. Please find further information about and links to each of the surveys below:

JET Involvement in the Local Community
This survey is intended for current JET Programme participants and will ask questions about how participants are engaging with their local communities. Your responses will help us assess the extent to which JET participants are involved, in what ways they are able to get involved and where they get information on community-based activities. Through presenting this information to the three ministries (MIC, MOFA, MEXT) and CLAIR, we hope to increase opportunities for JET Participants to get involved and forge lasting bonds with their communities. If you are a current JET participant, please click here to access and complete this survey.

Life After JET
This survey has been designed to collect information from both current and former JET Programme participants about their life after completing their JET Programme appointment and how they might maintain ties with their Japanese community. Through this survey, we hope to show that the JET Programme provides professional experience that can help participants in their post-JET ambitions, and that many participants maintain ties to their Japanese communities after completing their time on the Programme. By presenting this information to the three ministries and CLAIR, we hope to secure more professional development opportunities for current and future JET Programme participants, and demonstrate the positive return on investment of the JET Programme. If you are a current JET participant or JET Programme alumnus, please click here to access and complete the survey.

Awareness and Preparedness for Disasters and Emergencies
This survey will ask current JET Programme participants about their awareness of local emergency protocols and their preparedness in relation to natural disasters. Your responses will help us to assess the current level of JET participant awareness about disasters and how this may have changed as a result of the Great Tohoku Disaster of March 2011. By presenting these results to the three ministries (MIC, MOFA, MEXT) and CLAIR, we hope to influence positive change in emergency systems to make them more accessible to JET Programme participants. If you are a current JET participant, please click here to access and complete the survey.

All surveys will be open from September 2nd to September 13th. All answers are collected anonymously.
Your input is highly valued and we appreciate your time and assistance. Please feel free to contact our projects manager, Penny Fox, using the email address  with any questions or feedback you may have.

Thanks, and have a great day!
