Serendipity are proud to collaborate with educators at schools, colleges and universities to offer a range of training and meaningful engagement around Black British history.  Our CEO Pawlet Brookes MBE regularly presents guest keynotes as part of Serendipity’s commitment to advocacy and sharing best practice.  She is a regular contributor to the programme for the Black European Summer School and also sits of the advisory panel for Midlands4Cities.

Our work involves training archivists, curators and cultural organisations in accessing and using Black history actively and research tools for both charitable and commercial organisations to use in planning, promoting and broadening audiences.

Young Archivists is a CPD accredited training programme aimed at young people from diverse communities who are currently under-represented in the heritage sector, to learn from heritage experts.  The programme supports people interested in a career in the sector to use technology to understand how archives and intangible heritage is recorded, preserved and shared.

This year we will launch an online CPD course focused on dance from the African and African Caribbean Diaspora for online audiences wishing to learn something new and  address genuine history for dance education.
