CLD practitioners in Fife Council use LEAP for planning work. LEAP stands for Learning, Evaluation and Planning.

It is a framework that supports us to plan more effectively, identify and evidence the changes that we hope to make; learn from our experiences and work in partnership with one another. LEAP is an approach to planning and evaluation that is outcome-focused, participatory and learning-based. It is a tool to aid more effective practice.
