Nova Group

Our company in a nutshell

Nova Group was established in 1981 and from its beginnings as a single branch, has carved out a position at the forefront of Japan's teaching industry. Nova now offers lessons in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Chinese, and provides tuition to over 475,000 students within 950 branches across Japan.

This success is based firmly upon fun, interactive and effective lessons delivered by fluent instructors who are educated in the language that they teach. Students enjoy small class sizes and highly conversational lessons with a focus on situational language. From ordering pizza and reminiscing about high school days to talking about current affairs and even telling jokes, lessons are easily applicable to life outside the classroom.

Life outside the classroom forms a central motivation for many instructors in joining the company. For those who are seeking more than the average tourist's glimpse, living and working in Japan offers an unparalleled insight - enhanced by the opportunity for career advancement and an attractive employment package.

Nova offers competitive salaries, travel support, accommodation assistance and paid training.

Instructors join the company with a range of experience, however the extensive training provided for Nova instructors caters to those with no teaching background at all and to individuals who possess some existing teaching skills. Extensive opportunities for promotion and transfer also exist, making Nova ideal for individuals seeking career opportunities, travel, new horizons and much more.
