Japan Conference for Schools

Japan Conference for Schools Logo
The one-day annual conference is free to attend, and open to all teachers and local authority advisors. It aims to allow them to network and share practical ideas about introducing Japan and Japanese in their schools. It also aims to give experienced schools ideas on taking their Japanese activities further.

We are particularly interested in including participants who are thinking about Japanese teaching or developing a link with Japan but who have not yet done so, and those who have not attended the Conference before.

The Conference includes a variety of workshops by UK-based teachers. These focus on topics such as teaching Japanese language and culture, and linking projects with Japanese partner schools. Participants are also able to exchange ideas with colleagues and attend surgeries about funding and other support available for schools for Japan-related projects.
