PGCE Resources

The PGCE collection of teaching resources can be used by all students, but is of particular use for Aberystwyth Secondary PGCE students. During the practical periods of their course, the loan dates of these books 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.

All items in the Collection are added to Primo - the Library Catalogue and are located in the Hugh Owen Library.
