The Teaching Careers Advice Room was established in 1978 to provide information to students aspiring to become teachers about state school and private school teacher employment examinations, and to offer support for students sitting these examinations. The room is permanently staffed by “teaching careers advisors” who are graduates of Waseda University and have experience working as head teacher of schools. Support is given to students aspiring to become teachers through one-to-one consultations and interview support, etc. If you are hoping to sit a teacher employment examination it is recommended that you visit the Teaching Careers Advise Room as soon as possible to begin preparation. Please start simply by paying a visit to the room. A broad range of support is offered, from elementary school through to senior high school.
