A large proportion of careers require an understanding of language and great communication skills. Achieving a good grade in English GCSE gives young people access to opportunities and choices in future life. Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank is proven to support young people in building these key skills to help them follow their chosen path.
From the opening night in 2007 to the end of this year’s run of Twelfth Night, over 137,000 young people will have attended a free Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank performance at the Globe. But the partnership is much more than just free tickets. With tailored in-school workshops, teacher training and online learning tools, we are hugely proud of what has been achieved over the last decade.
What part does Deutsche Bank play?
The relationship between Deutsche Bank and Globe Education goes beyond a donation; the partnership has grown over ten years with two teams working closely together to refine the project and have an ever-greater impact on teaching and learning. Employee involvement is central to the Bank’s approach to Corporate Citizenship. Thousands of employees have attended performances to support the project, bringing their family and friends to see the outstanding work of Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank.
Beyond Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank’s interest in education goes beyond Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank. Born to Be, it's youth engagement programme, aims to raise aspirations, increase access opportunities and help to equip young people with the skills they will require both at school and as they move into further education, training or employment.
