King Ethelbert School and the Turner Contemporary Gallery work in a sustained partnership in which students are trained as gallery guides, or Youth Navigators, to work with the public during exhibitions. Both organisations are committed to improving young peoples’ achievement and raising their aspirations. This case study outlines how investing in a strong and sustainable relationship with an external community partner, gave school students and staff powerful creative learning opportunities.
