CLEAPSS DT - Supporting practical work in science, technology and art


CLEAPSS membership renewals

This year CLEAPSS is moving to an electronic renewal system for its associate members.
During the next two weeks we will be sending out e-mails with the title ‘CLEAPSS Renewal’ so keep an eye out for these and follow the instructions carefully.
This should be straight forward, however to allow time for this new process on its first run through we have made sure that your current password will remain valid until the end of November.
If you don’t receive an e-mail there is no need to panic as you are probably not an ‘associate member’.

*Note this will include individual schools and colleges who subscribe directly to us, suppliers, not for profit organisations and individual members.
Schools and colleges that get their membership via a Local Authority, a Multi Academy Trust or other brokering organisation will not be affected.  

Futureminds 11
We have published a, short, special edition of Futureminds, to explain why the Live event failed to take place and to ask readers to take part in a short survey to help us develop future live events.

There are also articles on end of term arrangements, some updates from HSE and outlines of some of our latest documents.
