Teachers are required to possess an accredited Bachelor’s degree in any subject combined with a strong understanding and native command of the English language. A genuine interest in the culture and people of Japan as well as in teaching and business is also necessary. Japanese language ability and English as a Foreign Language (EFL/ESL/TESOL/TEFL/CELTA) teaching experience are very helpful but not mandatory. AEON employs individuals ranging from recent graduates to trained professionals. Although most of our foreign teachers are native English speakers, AEON still considers candidates from countries where English is not the primary language. To be considered, these candidates must have at least 10 years of education from schools where English is the primary mode of instruction.
