How it works

There are four key components to the sporteducate programme.

  1. Educational, Employability and Mentoring activities

Deutsche Bank is providing significant funding for 33 Sported Member clubs in London. The clubs have received grants to develop and run educational, employability and/or mentoring activities alongside their core sports offering.


The supplementary activities at each club have all been designed to achieve one or more of the programme’s outcomes (the 5 As), but will vary depending upon the identified needs of the young people. Examples of the different types of educational sessions currently being delivered thanks to the sporteducate include: core-curriculum supplementary classes; non-curriculum supplementary classes; homework clubs; employability skills workshops; vocational training; and one-to-one or group mentoring.



  1. Volunteer support from Deutsche Bank staff

To help with the running of the programme, sporteducate clubs are able to draw upon the enthusiasm and talent of Deutsche Bank staff. Volunteers are lending their support in a number of different capacities, from providing business consultancy and one-to-one mentoring to delivering education classes and career development workshops.


Deutsche Bank will also be creating wider opportunities for young people by running regular skills-building sessions and career development events at their London offices.



  1. Training workshops

All sporteducate clubs are provided with thorough training support and a comprehensive toolkit to help develop the best programme to deliver positive educational outcomes and capacity build the clubs. Examples of our bespoke training sessions include ‘How to motivate and mentor young people’ and ‘Delivering employability and educational activities’.




  1. Building the evidence pool

Another element that makes sporteducate unique is our Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E). Over the course of three-years, the progress of every young person on the programme will be regularly assessed against specific metrics for each of the programme’s five outcomes – attitude, attendance, achievement, aspirations and aptitude.


In collecting this data, Sported and Deutsche Bank will not only be able to review the programme’s impact on an on-going basis, but also by the end of three-years we aim to have built a robust and comprehensive pool of evidence to demonstrate the positive impact sport and early interventions can have on young people who are at high-risk of becoming NEET.


The programme utilises self-assessment questionnaires, Views and Sportworks to collect this data.
