About the Japanese Childcare License: Kosodate Sien-In
Don't have time to get your Hoikushi license? How about Hoikushi-lite?
OBP Academy's Maki Yagi will present an information session about the Kosodate Sien-In license on Saturday, May 21, 9:00 - 10:00 a.m.
Hoikushi vs Kosodate Sien-In
Both licenses are for people working with children. However, compared to the Hoikushi License, the Kosodate Sien-In license is "easier" to get.
The National Government grants the Hoikushi License, while Municipal/City officials grant the Kosodate Sien-In License.
Japanese regulations require a Hoikushi for schools to qualify for certain government funds, but Kosodate Sien-In license holders can sometimes cover additional staff requirements. In addition, the license does not expire and might be a good "first step" for those considering getting the Hoikushi qualification in the future.
OBP Academy not only helps non-native Japanese speakers prepare for the test and secure a spot for observation training, but they also guide you through all of the administrative processes.
Maki will explain more about the Kosodate Sien-In and its benefits. Also, she will introduce their support course, which helps improve students' overall Japanese ability and other skills, ensuring all students are comfortable and well prepared for success.
