LGEC members can now order any resources you want to borrow for an entire term and have them delivered to your school. At the end of term, we'll come back to collect them from you. You may order up to 20 books, teaching packs, DVDs or artefact boxes. Or if you don't have the time to look through our resource catalogue, you can tell us the topics you are interested in and we'll assemble a box for you.

Plus, for the first 3 schools to order, your first order will be free of charge. After that, the charge will be £10 for a single delivery, or £25 for three deliveries per year (one per term). No more worries about finding the time to get into town and braving the rush hour traffic! So start browsing now, and let us have your orders. For more information, please email us or call 01772 252299.

What is the LGEC Resource Centre?

Our resource centre allows you to purchase or borrow specialist resources, including books and DVDs on subjects such as sustainable development, citizenship education, international partnerships, and challenging cultural stereotypes.

The LGEC Resource Centre is open by appointment Monday through Friday from 9.30 am - 5 pm. Resources are loaned out for 6 weeks and you can borrow up to 6 resources at a time. You need to become a member of LGEC to be able to borrow resources. You can download our membership form here.

Looking for an activity or resource but not sure where to start? You can now search our online resource catalogue of more than 1000 resources available to borrow. For information on our artefact collections, see our List of Artefacts for Classroom Use section.


We have numerous teaching packs linked to the National Curriculum, as well as artefacts from different countries to help bring learning alive. You can download lists of resources which we have available for loan above. Also see our Publications for Sale which stocks a wide range of practical teaching resources for the classroom.
