The PGCE collection of teaching resources can be used by all students, but is of particular use for PGCE Secondary students. During teaching practice placements, the loan dates are extended so that students may borrow them for the duration of their teaching placements. It is only books from this collection (identified with a green band on the spine) that have this extended loan period and all other books in the university libraries remain standard loans. This collection is located on Level E and F of the Hugh Owen Library.
