Twice a year AJET gathers information and opinions through the National AJET surveys. Data AJET gathers is presented in a joint session with the three ministries (MIC, MOFA, MEXT) and CLAIR to help guide the JET Program forward. If you want your voice to be heard, this is one of the best opportunities you’ll have, so be sure to take a few minutes out of your day to complete the survey! Those who finish the survey will be in the running to win an Amazon Japan gift card!
If you need some extra encouragement, know that AJET report findings have helped to ban smoking from school staff rooms and raise the JET Program maximum tenure from 3 to 5 years. Your opinion is valuable and can lead to lasting change through this program! We look forward to hearing from you.
