The service aims to provide academies with the benefits of CLEAPSS membership. A CLEAPSS licence provides access to extensive and authoritative support to the teaching of practical subjects and in particular to provide advice and CPD related to health and safety. Its initial remit was to support science teaching but this has recently extended to include design and technology and art and design.
It has an international reputation. Membership includes all UK local authorities, plus many academies, FE colleges and independent schools.
Through membership of CLEAPSS academies will benefit by being able to:
• Discharge their responsibilities under the Health and Safety at Work Act and subsequent regulations to provide protection for their employees by, for example, providing safe working conditions, information, training for health and safety, and risk assessments for activities (required under a range of regulations, including COSHH).
• Access a one stop shop approach to satisfying the school’s responsibilities in relation to the teaching of science, design and technology and art and design
Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) Support Service
Maintained schools have a statutory requirement to undertake the induction of newly qualified teachers under an appropriate body in line with the DfE guidance.
It is expected that academies, free schools and other establishments employing NQTs will employ similar good practise and ensure all NQTs complete their training in line with the statutory requirements.
The council will act as the appropriate body to monitor and support both the NQT and the mentor to maximise the benefit of the induction period and to provide guidance which, if followed will ensure that the induction period is completed successfully
