The aims of this Internship
The main objective is to support the company’s ongoing projects, in the fields of
Activities, duties and responsibilities
The intern will contribute to the company’s work in current and new projects, and to potentially bring in new ideas for the company.
Currently, we are close to completing a transnational project, “Innovative format of education and training of the integrated archaeological and natural heritage”, led by Polish partners, to develop training materials for heritage management professionals, and the Intern would contribute to research and promotion of this project.
We undertake some videorecording of conferences and training presentations, including as part of a major project to develop Online Resources and Training on behalf of Historic England, and the intern would be trained in videorecording and in the automatic transcription of text to prepare materials for the development of new e-learning materials.
We are working on two significant labour market intelligence projects in the USA, and the intern will contribute to data analysis and reporting for these.
We are also in the process of refreshing our online presence, including our library of e-learning resources, and will look to involve the intern in this work.
Skills and Experience that will be useful for this internship - these will be used to shortlist candidates
We are looking for someone who is self-reliant, and who can work without constant close supervision
As well as doing research and reporting, we also would like to take on someone that has ideas that they want to develop and that can be commercialised. If their idea fits into – or even better, if it expands the company’s profile, then Landward Research Ltd would consider making a real capital investment in supporting the project.
While we are interested in developing the company’s work in the areas of:
- Labour Market Intelligence
But, again, an enthusiastic and energetic student from any course who has the right kind of ideas might fit into the bigger picture very well.
