This one-day discussion-based course will explore and share ideas for good science prep-room management in schools and colleges.
You're encouraged to bring along pictures of your own prep room to share with the group. These could show examples of good ideas, e.g. inventive storage solutions, and/or areas of concern.
You'll also explore managing requisitions, so examples of how this can be achieved would be helpful, e.g. how an overview of the week is displayed and requisition forms used.
course is run by the Consortium of Local Education Authorities for the
Provision of Science Services (CLEAPSS) at UCL Institute of Education

Jane Major for CLEAPSS
CLEAPSS provides advice and guidance on all aspects of practical work in science, technology and art. This guidance explores ideas for exciting and engaging practical activities that fire pupils' imaginations. Then, unlike many alternative resources, it goes on to show teachers and technicians, in detail, how to translate these ideas into safe and exciting classroom experiences.
CLEAPSS has a membership of more than 28,000 schools and colleges, mainly in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, where its advice is recognised by HSE, DFE and OFSTED as representing best practice in these areas. As such, it's used by employers as the basis for them to discharge their responsibilities under the H&S at work act, 1999.
