CyberOlympian joins the Bell team for our new eSports academy

Learn from the best as you combine English, teamwork and gaming in our new summer option for young learners

Jason Deane knows a bit about computer games. He's the manager of the oldest internet café and gaming zone in the UK, a former compere of the CyberOlympics and the new tutor for Bell's eSports academy, part of the Summer Explorer course at Wellington College. This summer, he'll be sharing his expertise with a class of young gamers, keen to develop their skills in both English and eSports.

But is it really possible to learn and play through computer games? Jason reassures us that he'll be concentrating on helping students develop a wide range of skills. "This is not just about gaming, this is about teamwork," he says. "Over the course, we'll also learn about the history of gaming and eSports, how it's evolved and what we believe is going to happen in the future." The final session will be a play-off between the students of an age-appropriate team game with certificates and awards to celebrate learning achievements. It promises to be an exciting course for young gamers, so if you know someone who'd like to learn eSports from an expert, make sure you reserve their place.
