In Oita Prefecture, there are four JET PAs based in Oita City, two CIR-PAs and two ALT-PAs, as well as a Japanese PA. It is somewhat important to note that these are not simply titles, but it means that we are expected to fulfill our PA duties on top of our respective CIR/ALT duties.
**Note: We strongly recommend talking to your supervisor before consulting the PAs in nearly all cases. Certain administrative measures cannot be done without the knowledge and consultation of your supervisor, so if you need something done related to the JET Programme, it is most effective to start this by communicating openly with your supervisor.
"Certain ALTs, CIRs, and Japanese local government employees serve as prefectural advisors in each host prefecture/designated city and often work in the prefecture or designated city's international affairs division or board of education. They can provide useful information for JET participants and contracting organisations, however JET participants should contact their contracting organisation before contacting a prefectural advisor."
For more information regarding how the PA system works, please contact your PA.
