National AJET was honored to be able to present Dr. Charles Browne with this year’s AJET Goodwill Ambassador Award! We salute his contributions in the JET Programme and continued efforts to improve Japan’s English education.
As the first Chair of the AJET National Council, Dr. Browne helped organize AJET and its efforts to provide JETs with services and opportunities to enhance their abilities and enrich their experience while on the Programme. Since then, Dr. Browne has continued creating resources for teaching professionals, and has collaborated with companies and government organisations to identify new ways to help teachers and students in Japan. Now a professor at Meiji Gakuin University, Dr. Browne presents at conferences in Japan and abroad on a monthly basis, and has published several textbooks. Dr. Browne continues to support the JET Programme and AJET, and we are very grateful for his steadfast dedication.
