CLEAPSS reserves the right to postpone or cancel any course that does not meet minimum numbers 10  working days prior to the course. Please ensure that participants you book onto this course are made aware of this and that CLEAPSS will not be liable for the cost of any un-refundable travel or accommodation arrangement in the event of a cancelled course.


In the event that CLEAPSS is forced to cancel a course due to circumstances beyond our control (such as adverse weather or a trainer being ill), CLEAPSS will not be liable to reimburse participants for any non-refundable travel or accommodation costs


Science teaching has a very good health and safety record. Nevertheless, science teachers must comply with health and safety legislation and there are many pitfalls to trap the unwary.  As well as knowing how to work safely, new teachers also have to develop the skills needed to run a successful practical lesson. As part of the course we will consider what this means and offer suggestions and tips based on CLEAPSS advice and guidance.


Who is the course leader?


You will be able to:

  • raise the awareness of health and safety matters amongst new science teachers
  • fulfill, in part, the obligation on employers to provide health and safety training for new staff
  • develop an understanding of risk assessment
  • allow participants to share concerns about health and safety matters
  • further develop skills and techniques for running a successful practical lesson
