Playing Shakespeare With Deutsche Bank

Attaining a good grade in English gives young people access to opportunities and choices in future life. Careers including advertising, film, publishing, law, teaching and television all require great communication skills and an understanding of language. Building skills will help you to follow your chosen path.

From the opening night in 2007 to the end of this year’s run of Othello, over 117,000 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, the Bank is proud to be associated with the project.

What part does Deutsche Bank play?

The relationship between Deutsche Bank and Globe Education goes beyond a donation; the partnership has grown over nine 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. This year, employees will also be supporting by volunteering as ushers at the performances.

Is it just a supporting role?

Deutsche Bank’s interest in education goes beyond Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank. Born to Be, their youth engagement programme, aims to increase access, raise aspirations 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.
