CLEAPSS is an advisory service providing support in science and technology for a consortium of local authorities and their schools including establishments for pupils with special needs.
Independent schools, post-16 colleges, teacher training establishments, curriculum developers and others can apply for associate membership. We offer help from nursery education through to A-level studies or equivalent.
CLEAPSS first started in 1963 as CLEAPSE (Consortium of Local Education Authorities for the Provision of Science Equipment). In 1988 the name was changed to CLEAPSS (Consortium of Local Education Authorities for the Provision of Science Services) to reflect a change of emphasis from equipment to a range of services. Since then, Local Education Authorities became Local Authorities and our services expanded to include D&T, so CLEAPSS was registered as a Trade Mark. CLEAPSS is now simply a name and not an acronym.
CLEAPSS provides support for a consortium of local authorities. It is controlled by its members which currently incudes all LAs throughout the British Isles (not Scotland) (100% of those eligible).
It has around 2000 associate members, ie:
