Thank you for your interest to work with us!
Axis International School is a unique school that has made a hybrid between the traditional school and a home school program. By mixing the two, we are able to take the strengths of both and offer our students a far superior learning environment. Standardized tests are starting to show that our students are performing much better than average, and that has become our advantage. We take average kids and produce an above average number of superior students. We welcome anyone with a like mind, who genuinely wants to assist kids from all walks of life to making achievements that they never though they could do, and giving them options that they never dreamed they could have.
We generally have two intakes a year. Japanese schools start in April, and many international schools start in September. Both are important dates for new hires. As it takes up to 4 months to obtain the appropriate visa, we start looking at least 6 months ahead of those dates.
It is sometimes difficult to predict when a position will open so if you would like to submit your resume in the hope that something will open up in the coming months, then please send your resume to: firstname.lastname@example.org When we know of a vacancy, the word VACANCY will appear beside that position.
Please submit the following when you apply:
- Cover Letter
- Essay about what makes a good teacher
- Resume with as much biographical information as possible(visa status, married, children, driver's license, date of birth, date of graduation, etc.)
We prefer teaching applicants with teaching credentials. For applicants wishing to teach, and who are not credentialed teachers, we are able to take you as long as you agree to do a certification program lasting about a year. You may then teach in the area of your degree.
Interns are welcome to apply for internships.

- Japanese Social Health insurance
