New Log In Details
The new login and password has been sent to members via the printed bulletin.

As part of the move to online membership processing, direct members of CLEAPSS (ie not via a local authority or other brokering organisation) will have been sent a renewal notice by e-mail. We have sent out over 2500 electronic requests and so far almost half of those we have contacted have successfully navigated the online membership renewal process.If the renewal request has been passed to you by someone else and you are not sure what to do next, give us a ring (01895 251496) and ask us to resend the renewal directly to you. That way you can simply click on the link in the e-mail to access the online portal. 

If your school has not renewed its membership by the end of January, membership will lapse and your password will stop working.

Student Safety Sheet 2019 Update
You may have noticed we have updated our Student Safety Sheets to the 2019 edition. 

All the changes are error corrections of layout, typo and technical mistakes. Apart from minor changes to safe working low voltages, no major changes have been made to our safety advice.
Teachers in Residence
Teachers in Residence has been set up by the Design and Technology Association to provide teachers with the opportunity to work with a UK-based design, manufacturing, engineering or construction business, to get an in-depth understanding of modern industry.

This free programme, funded by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMECHE), will run up to the end of February 2020. 

You need to commit five days (holiday or release from school) during which you will be offered an internship with a business. This will include hands-on experience across different departments, attendance at client meetings and an overview of how the company runs.
