CLEAPSS Supporting practical science and technology


CLEAPSS courses are delivered in suitable venues across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
If you find that a particular course is not available in your area, please contact to let us know and we will try to arrange a course at a training center in your region. If this is not feasible, you may be able to host the course at your school.

Hosting a course in a school (organised by an individual school, SLP, MAT, TSA, local authority etc)
To host a course the school must be a CLEAPSS member. You need to provide a suitable room, lunch and refreshments for the course. In return you receive 3 free places on the course (or the cash equivalent) and CLEAPSS will reimburse you up to £10 per head for refreshments and lunch.
CLEAPSS will do all of the administration for the course, including recruiting participants. If the minimum number of participants (12) has not been recruited by 2 weeks before the course, the course will be re-scheduled or cancelled.

Technician Networks
If you have registered your technician group or network with CLEAPSS you have the option of arranging a training course solely for the members of your network. You ‘hire’ the CLEAPSS trainer for our standard fee of £950 and provide a suitable venue, refreshments and lunch. This approach would give your members access to high quality training in an accessible local venue at very low cost. Please note: you need to have a minimum of 12 participants for a course to run.

H&&S training for departments
CLEAPSS is able to offer a one day school based course for all the staff in a science or D&T department (teachers and technicians) for our standard fee of £950. This course is most effective if all the staff are able to attend.

If you are interested in arranging a CLEAPSS course, please review our General Venue Requirements to ensure you have a suitable venue.
If can meet these basic requirements please contact to request the venue requirements specific to the course you are interested in.

Please provide:
  • The name and address of your School / Technician Network / MAT/ SLP / TSA etc.
  • The course(s) you would like to host.
  • When you would like to host the course(s) – please provide 3 dates that are at least 12 weeks from the date you submit them, we are unable to organise courses at short notice.
  • The full address of the venue for the course

We aim to respond to all queries within 10 working days.
Employers organising training for their own staff (for example Local Authorities or Multi Academy Trusts), or organisations offering a program of 10 or more courses across a 12 months period may qualify for a fixed fee model – please contact CLEAPSS to discuss.
