Frequently Asked Questions

Question/ What is the 'LEAD Community of Practice'?
 It may be better to ask 'WHO ARE the community of practice?'! In short it is a 'community' of individuals, teams, organisations and networks all grappling with questions around language, education and development. The focus of the community is working with marginalised communities, often marginalised because of their unique culture and/or language, and it is facilitated by LEAD Asia, a unit of SIL International in Asia.

Q/ I don’t work in Asia, am I still able to attend LEAD CoP events?
 Yes! The LEAD CoP is open to anyone interested in integrating issues of language, education and development. The majority of attendees will be located or working within Asia and so there will naturally be a focus on appropriate strategies for this region. However, the broader the range of participants the richer the discussions, and as such we warmly welcome attendees from anywhere in the world.

Q/ Is there a registration fee?
A/ No. It is free to attend but you are responsible for your own accommodation, travel and meal costs (except for lunches during the event, which will be provided at the venue for all participants).

Q/ Do you have funds to help me attend LEAD CoP events?
A/ No. Unfortunately, since we do not have external funding for events, LEAD Asia does not have any funds to help participants attend.

Q/ How do I register?
A/ A link to a registration form will be made available a few months before each event. Keep an eye on the event information (by clicking on the links above) or sign-up to the LEAD mailing list by filling in this form:
