Professional Development Request

Our Japanese Language Consultants conduct professional development sessions at regional Japanese language teachers’ conferences and seminars in Australia and New Zealand. These seminars aim to give Japanese language teachers ideas for the classroom, bolster teaching proficiency, provide access to Japan Foundation resources, and much more.

Consultations are available upon request.

PD Content

We conduct professional development sessions for teachers of Japanese in the following areas:

  • Upgrading teacher proficiency
  • Teaching ideas
  • Classroom activities based on the Australian Curriculum
  • Japan Foundation web resources for Japanese classes
  • Cultural activities
  • Recent Japanese Trends

We can also assist with workshops for students. Please contact us for more information.


There are no presenter fees.

However, to share the cost burden and allow our consultants to conduct as many PDs as possible, we ask PD organisers to share the cost where possible by covering transportation fees and/or accommodation.
For example, a common scenario is for JF to cover travel costs and for organisers to cover accommodation.

PD sessions should have at least 10 participants. If in doubt, please contact us to discuss.


To apply for a PD, please complete the form and return it to us at

Please apply at least 2 months prior to the workshop or seminar.
