What is TEPRO?
TEPRO, established by the Tokyo Metropolitan Board of Education, is the first organization in Japan to provide multifaceted support to public schools in Tokyo.
Going forward, we will promote work style reform for teachers through various business activities to support schools, such as the TEPRO Supporter Bank project.
What is Work Style Reform for Teachers?
As the environment surrounding schools becomes more complex and diverse, and the required roles of schools expand, further enhancement of school education is required.
Under these circumstances, teachers in the field of school education are making dedicated efforts to deal with children on a daily basis. Meanwhile, it has become clear that teachers work long hours, and it considerably affects the mental and physical health of teachers who support children’s learning and, at the same time, has become a serious problem that affects the quality of daily educational activities.
For this reason, the national government and boards of education are promoting the reform of teachers’ work styles within our schools, in order to enable teachers to refine their own teaching skills, to enhance their humanity and creativity, and to carry out effective educational activities for children, by reviewing their work styles.
Roles of TEPRO
- To stably secure diverse external human resources and refer appropriate human resources to schools.
- To support teachers by providing consultation on matters of concern outside their area of expertise, and by acting as an agent for high-level negotiations, etc.
- To promote support for teachers and their participation in school management by consolidating and streamlining administrative work.
By taking on these roles, we will provide multifaceted support to public schools in Tokyo and promote work style reform for teachers.
