Countesthorpe Academy’s Hive Sixth Form is getting ready to offer Esports BTEC Level 3 National Extended Certificate, offering a unique opportunity to study a sector that crosses over multiple subject areas such as sport, marketing, enterprise, IT, fitness and well-being. To deliver this exciting course the Academy has worked with Yoyotech to create a bespoke 26 seater gaming arena. This will be kitted out ready to ready these lucky students for the esports industry, either through apprenticeships or higher education. Endorsed by the British Esports Association, the BTEC Level Three qualification is recognised by employers and will support entry into the industry in a range of roles.
Countesthorpe Academy's groundbreaking gaming space is a testament to the power of serendipitous encounters and the boundless potential of esports in education. Emily Perkins' journey from a mix-up to an esports enthusiast, combined with our partnership with E-Blue, has given rise to a one-of-a-kind gaming environment that will inspire and captivate students for years to come. At Yoyotech, we eagerly anticipate numerous upcoming projects that will continue to redefine the possibilities in the intersection of gaming and education.
