CLEAPSS was established in partnership with the local education authorities of the United Kingdom to provide a competent source of advice on science education to schools and colleges. It now also provides advice on design and technology. Originally school membership of CLEAPSS was restricted to LEA schools (which were paid for by their home LEA). There are now more classes of membership available. It is still usually more cost effective to subscribe through an LEA. Some CLEAPSS services, such as the Radiation Protection Adviser service, can only be purchased through an LEA service, such as ourselves. If you would like a quote for membership of the general CLEAPSS service or the CLEAPSS Radiation Protection Adviser service please contact us.www.cleapss.org.uk
