About Program

Japan has become the most popular Teach Abroad destination in the world but until now no program has existed which includes a TEFL certification, cultural immersion course, guaranteed job placement, and 24/7 support. But no need to fret, TravelBud has you covered.

On TravelBud's Paid Teaching program in Japan, you’ll learn all about Japanese culture and language, go on awesome cultural excursions, earn your internationally accredited TEFL/TESOL certification in a Japanese coastal city, and gain 2 full days of invaluable teaching practice at a local Japanese school - all in your first month before you start teaching at your school!

TravelBud's placements are available at the highest quality schools throughout Japan, all of which go through our strict vetting process. You'll earn up $2500 per month and receive 24/-7 in-country support throughout.

All of our 2022 intakes have been postponed, but you can secure your spot in our 2023 intakes early!
