|| The Teaching Profession Consultation Office was opened six years ago. In April 2008, we succeeded our predecessor Nishizaki to provide guidance to students wishing to become
teachers. Our guidance activities center on theses and essays, individual and group interviews, group discussions, mock classes, situational guidance, and role playing. Besides these, we provided career guidance, consultation on work as volunteers and lecturers, and any other matters that concerned the students or things they wished to try out. We were also inspired by the aggressiveness of the students who came to the office for consultation, and, as a teacher at the site of education, we made sure to provide guidance and assistance by focusing on enhancing qualities as a human being that enable students to demonstrate their skills and abilities as on-site teachers. As a result, we were able to increase the number of students who visit the office and who pass the teaching staff examination.
