Teaching skills for school
and life

If you haven’t had the best start in life, negative influences can make it difficult to change your outlook.

Our partnership with Sported uses sport for development to overcome the obstacles young people from disadvantaged backgrounds face. Together we have developed sporteducate, a pioneering education programme designed to help disadvantaged young people gain specific educational outcomes through sport. It provides inspiration, motivation and the skills to negotiate life on and off the field.

How it works

Following a successful pilot across five clubs in 2013, sporteducate has now been rolled out to 33 community sports clubs in London providing funding, training and management support to run education and employability activities alongside a sports offering.
The educational activities at each club are carefully designed to meet the specific needs of its young participants – aged from 11 to 18 years - and vary from core curriculum supplementary classes and employability skills, to providing new computer equipment and IT classes.

Sporteducate supports a range of youth and sport clubs - from football to boxing, athletics to martial arts; helping participants to stay in school, improve performance and increase their self-esteem. Since the pilot a referral system has been introduced to target those young people most at risk of becoming NEET.

Volunteers from Deutsche Bank are an integral part of the sporteducate programme and are already making a positive impact at many clubs. They are lending their expertise in a number of capacities, including one-to-one mentoring, running CV workshops and mock interviews, and becoming Trustees and Treasurers.
