10th Batch of Japan-bound Nurses and Careworkers to Undergo Preparatory Japanese Language Training

Japan Information and Culture Center (JICC) - Press Release No. 43- 2017



The opening ceremony of the Preparatory Japanese Language Training for the 10th Batch of Candidate Nurses and Careworkers bound for Japan under the JPEPA was held on November 9, 2017 at the TESDA Women’s Center in Taguig City.

The training program is implemented through the collaborative efforts of the governments of Japan and the Philippines. This endeavor goes beyond their standing commitments in the Japan-Philippines Economic Partnership Agreement (JPEPA) and aims to further assist Filipino candidate nurses and careworkers in passing the Japanese Licensure Examinations after they enter and work in Japan.

A total of 316 Filipino candidates from the 10th Batch of Candidate Nurses and Caregivers to Japan will undergo six months of preparatory training at three different venues: the Language Skills Institute at TESDA, the Nihongo Center Foundation Inc., and the PAD Foundation Inc. They will then depart for Japan in June 2018 and undergo another six months of Japanese language training there.
