Each year there will be three annual ALT meetings and a Skills Development Conference in November.

The meetings will always take place at the Mito Lifelong Study Center (水戸生涯学習センター) from 10:00-15:30. The address is 1-5-38 Sannomaru Mito-shi (1-5-38三ノ丸水戸市). Google maps link here.

Newcomer’s orientation

There will be one orientation meeting in August for incoming Ibaraki JETs. This will take place at the Ibaraki Prefectural Office (茨城県庁).

Unlike the Lifelong Learning Center, unless you have a car, you’ll probably need to take the bus. In order to get to the orientation on time, you can take the 9:15 bus from the Mito train station at the latest. The bus leaves from bus stop number 3. Google maps link here.

More information can be found on page 64 of the Orientation Handbook.

Skills Development Conference (SDC)

The skills development conference will take place at the Ibaraki Teacher Training Center in Kasama (茨城県教育研修センター). Google maps link here. More information will be released prior to the event.

World Cultural Seminar

The World Culture Seminar (WCS) is a semiannual event that takes place at the Ibaraki International Association. JET’s who volunteer can present about a topic of their choosing, and typically present for an hour and a half. More information will be emailed out closer to the event.
