Globally it is predicted that esports will generate $1.1bn in 2020 and in the UK there are estimated to be 36.6 millions gamers with 3.1 million of these esports enthusiasts.
Our Students have to demonstrate a wide range of skills to be successful in a game. Team work, communication, problem solving to name but a few.
We are also hoping to expand our reach by broadcasting more regularly on platforms such as twitch and working with professional esports players as coaches.
