Platforms for interaction

Platforms for interaction with students in Japan

The BEO has operates Facebook groups where students in Japan, the BEO, the Principal Agent in Japan and the Ministry of Labour and Human Resources can interact with each other.  These groups are created batch-wise before the students leave for Japan and have thus far been very useful to stay abreast with the situations of students, take in their concerns and put in interventions to support them. Three BEO staff man these groups which are actively used.
