Heritage Skills

Are you working on a heritage project or documenting your family history?

There is a growing interest in collecting memories and stories from the past and making them accessible for future generations. These all help us understand the present and shape our futures.

Our short accredited courses are tailored to individual project or activity needs and provide you the skills to conduct interviews, digitise photographs and documents to develop exhibitions and publications.

Visits to our partner organisations including the Victoria & Albert Museum and/or the Horniman Museum can be arranged on request.


PRSSV specialises in work with Black and Minority Ethnic (BME), migrant and refugee communities providing them with bespoke training that is tailored to fit the needs of projects that seek to promote an understanding of their heritage.

If you would like to discuss your project needs please contact us and we will be in touch as soon as possible.


Through its Heritage Skills qualifications, PRSSV provides support and accreditation for anyone working or volunteering in museums, for community organisations or on personal projects needing skills related to oral histories, collections or exhibitions as novices or professionals.

PRSSV provides accredited qualifications accredited by OCN Credit4Learning in heritage skills, including oral history, exhibition development, digitisation and care of collections.
