With the aim of enhancing mental health support for JET participants, CLAIR offers the JET Programme Mental Health Counselling Assistance Programme. This programme provides a partial subsidy (50%, up to 30,000 yen per year) for counselling costs incurred through consultation with mental health professionals in Japan not covered by health insurance.
The coverage period for this year is from 1 April, 2019 to 31 March, 2020. The application form must be sent to CLAIR by 10 April 2020 (Fri).
CLAIR also offers a free online service to provide JET participants with mental health assistance from professional counsellors using Web Mail and Skype.
If you would like to use this service, please access the following website. After entering the password, you will be instructed to register. You can receive up to seven Skype Counselling sessions from 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020. CLAIR recommends trying the Web Mail Counselling system first. There is no limit to the number of threads you can start in the Web Mail Counselling system.

JET Participants finishing their term of appointment in July/August this year are strongly recommended to start planning for their departure as early as possible.
Please refer to the relevant information for departing JET Programme participants found in the 2019 General Information Handbook (Chapter 7: Leaving JET, p.160-175) and the After JET Guide.
In addition, if you require a certificate of employment or letter of recommendation for your future job search, please do not forget to request it from your contracting organisation (Samples are included in the appendix of the manual for contracting organisations and After JET Guide as a reference).
All JET participants are strongly advised to register with their home country’s embassy or local consulate while living in Japan, as your embassy may be able to help you and your relatives obtain necessary information and check on each other’s safety in times of emergency. Please ask your home country’s embassy or local consulate for details:
The JLPT N3, N2, and N1 Grant will be offered for the 2019-2020 year. More information regarding the 2019-2020 Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) Grant has been uploaded to the JET Programme website.

CLAIR and The Yomiuri Shimbun have launched a periodical column in The Japan News, a globally-circulated English language newspaper. “JET Programme Voices” is a collection of articles submitted by current and former JET participants which give a worldwide audience insight into unique experiences and achievements of participants during their time on the Programme. Instructions regarding the submission of documents are accessible from the link below.
As part of continued efforts to promote disaster preparedness and internationalisation at the grassroots level, CLAIR provides an online tool to easily develop signage in multiple languages. The main purpose of this tool is to allow users to create signage leading to evacuation areas, but it has many other useful templates as well. CIRs who are responsible for planning international events or translating signage as part of their work duties may find this tool helpful.
Selected videos from the Tokyo Post-Arrival Orientation have been uploaded to the official JET Programme website for those who were unable to attend all the workshops, would like to view other workshops, or simply want to review the workshop contents. If you are interested in viewing these videos, please ask your contracting organisation supervisor for the password.
