Message from President
Westgate Corporation began in 1983 as a company dedicated to English education reform in Japan. Our goal hasn't changed. We still strive to produce fluent English speakers for a global society.
There is a real need for teachers passionate about transforming students into proactive scholars and critical thinkers. That's something the Japanese education system — whether it's elementary school or university — doesn't always bring into focus. We aim to broaden students' cross-cultural awareness and international perspective while sharpening their English skills. To that end, we provide an International Career English Program for universities, a Secondary School Academic English Program for junior high schools and high schools, and a Young Learners English Program for elementary schools. But language education is not enough: we need to cultivate active young minds and turn them into global leaders. That cultivation is exactly what we think our Westgate teachers deliver.
Westgate — as our name suggests — is a gateway not only for students, but for instructors. We have provided thousands of instructors with successful entry into the competitive world of university education. Peerless training and staff support foster the nurturing environment that instructors need to realize their full creative teaching potential, all while enjoying the enviable cultural experience that Japan has to offer.
The success of our English programs would not be possible without excellent instructors. Westgate offers a serious milestone in career development in exchange for the dedication of any highly motivated teaching professional eager to flourish in a global teachers' institution. I invite you to join us.
