Award, Networking Event at British Council

Teachers are invited to attend an event at the British Council centre in Tokyo on Friday July 15 from 18:00 to 21:25. The event will feature two award ceremonies and will offer headteachers, teachers and people working in the field of education the opportunity to network informally over food and drink. The first award ceremony is for the EU-Japan Year of People-to-People Exchanges Video Clip Competition, which was co-financed by the European Commission and organised by the British Council, the Embassy of Ireland and the Goethe Institut. Students at junior and senior high schools all over Japan were asked to submit a 3-minute video clip explaining why they wanted to go to a European country. The winning entries in both the group and individual competitions will be shown, and participants will be asked to give their comments.

This will be followed by the award ceremony for the British Council's national lesson plan competition for teachers of English. This is an annual competition for participants on the JET Programme to work with their Japanese teachers of English on producing excellent and original lesson plans for team-teaching. Videos of the winning lesson plans being used in the classroom will be shown, and Ministry of Education judges will give their evaluation of the entries.

If you are interested in attending this event, please send a confirmation email with your name and name of your workplace to the British Council today, Wednesday July 6th.
