LISD Embedded Practitioners and Actions Program – LEAP

LISD Embedded Practitioners and Actions Program - LEAP

Let LISD assist in your academic, professional and personal development. We provide an innovative form of internship placement and monitoring programs that are tailored to the interests and needs of a few, carefully selected individuals each year. Besides placement in one of our core projects on the basis of availability there is also the possibility of one of the following advanced modes:
  • LISD Active Internship placement in select organisational, institutional, field or corporate settings, responding to various interests, but always actively monitored and guided by us;
  • more interactive LISD Embedded Practitioner experiences whereby we place, connect and tutor exceptional candidates in a cooperative venture with the host setting;
  • LISD Remote Personal Tutorials, broadly or specifically informing and guiding individual research and practical work, and/or inquiries and publications on line, by telephone and regular face-to-face meetings, on an need basis;
  • LISD Reverse Internships that allow us to more intensely respond to and engage with the activities and requirements of individuals already on a career, project or mission path.
