Esports (electronic sports) is competitive video gaming. Tournaments usually consist of amateur or professional gamers competing against one another.

This two year full-time course provides an in-depth study of the sector and could lead to progression to Higher Education and employment in key areas of the industry such as: Business, Finance, Marketing, Entrepreneurship, Coaching, Leadership, Events Management, Production and Journalism.

Kalam Neale, Sport Curriculum Leader, said: “Esports is a fast growing industry that engages millions of people worldwide and we are excited to offer students the chance to explore the sector further. Our Esports Open Event is an opportunity for students, parents and guardians to find out about the courses, progression and career prospects. We will also be running some taster sessions on the night too.”
