Training in Japan

To everyone interested in joining our team of official Jolly Phonics Trainers:
Please note that we *do not* provide any training sessions that certify you as a trainer. One training session is not sufficient to become a trainer.
Any certificate given to you at any Jolly Phonics training session is a Certificate of Participation or Attendance to show that you have undertaken training; not certification to become an official Jolly Phonics Trainer.

All of our Jolly Trainers are passionate educators with years of experience in the classroom teaching the Jolly Phonics programme. They have all undergone a comprehensive application process. We require them to display evidence of this experience, as well as proving their knowledge of the programme and how to teach it successfully.
We are delighted that there are so many of you that are passionate about the programme, and we hope you continue to further your knowledge of and experiences using Jolly Phonics. There is nothing to prevent you from using Jolly Phonics (though we do encourage training to ensure you are secure in your knowledge and make the best of the programme). However, please be aware that becoming a trainer is not something that can be done overnight by undertaking one training session.
