====================================

Employment Details

Initial teaching contracts are for one year. After the first year, the teacher and school may mutually agree to provide a two-year contract or continue with one-year contracts. Initial contracts are for ten months (September-June Probationary), while all subsequent one and two-year contracts are for 12 months from August to July.

Teachers must apply for Canadian teacher certification within the first two months of employment. Thus, all teachers must have completed certified teacher post-secondary training, including a “practicum,” and therefore be eligible for certification in Canada. A police background check/vulnerable sector check or equivalent is also required for Canadian teacher certification. Copies of university transcripts and certificates will be required before an interview is scheduled. Interviews can be conducted in person or online.


CIS Tokyo Teacher Benefits

 

Salary

The starting salary for new teachers is competitive with other international schools in Japan. The CIS teacher salary scale recognizes full-time teaching experience before employment with CIS and subsequent teaching experience gained while teaching at CIS Tokyo. The salary scale also recognizes teacher qualifications, including years of post-secondary education and degrees obtained.

Additional salary bonuses may be available for teachers who, in consultation with school administration, are requested to accept additional curricular and/or administrative responsibilities.


Accommodation, Commuting and Airfare Allowances

A monthly housing allowance is paid to teachers. An annual return airfare is provided for those teachers who initially reside in another country or city. Also, a commuter allowance is provided for daily transportation to and from work.


Working VISA and Accommodation Assistance

The school aids in locating and contracting housing upon entry into Japan. Assistance is also provided for teachers in their application for a Japanese work VISA, as required.


Medical Insurance

Medical insurance is provided through the Japanese National Health Plan or private international health insurance/travel insurance. The school will pay a portion towards a global health plan or approximately one-half of the Japanese National Health plan premium.


Leave

Ten days per school year are provided for sick/personal leave within some limitations and considerations. Teachers also receive 8-10 professional development and administrative days within a school year. Access to “in-school” and external in-service is also rotating for teachers. International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement (College Board of the US) workshops form a significant part of the PD opportunities for teachers. Other PD opportunities in subject areas for junior and senior high are also available. Leave of Absence without pay may also be approved in consultation with the Head of School.


Japanese Employment taxes

Foreign teachers are liable for Japanese national and local taxes on income earned in Japan.
