This service is included in the Subscription and Subscription Plus packages but can also be bought separately. The service includes all delivery and collections of the items.
The Artefact Loan service is designed to provide a cost effective and efficient way for schools to enhance pupil's learning experiences with 'hands on' experiences with a wide range of artefacts, which are often very expensive to purchase especially when they are only needed for short periods.
Purchase of this service is for the whole school and allows all teaching staff to borrow up to 4 items (or collections) at a time for a period of 3 weeks.
