Before applicants enter the actual Trainee Teacher period, they have to complete a three-month Work Experience program. During this period, the school will watch the applicant closely and decide whether he or she is suited for the teacher position. Applicants do not receive any salary during this period.

During the first six months, a teacher is not entitled to take days off. The number of unpaid leave increases to 10 days thereafter. Working hours are from 4 pm to 9 pm on weekdays and from 10 am to 6 pm on Saturdays. Sunday and another weekday ーdepending on the scheduleー are off.
