NASEF, the North America Scholastic Esports Federation, and the British Esports Association have signed an MOU in order to multiply the positive impact of the two organizations on the life and career education of youth around the world.

NASEF and British Esports are leveraging esports as a platform for students to do much more than play video games competitively. On opposite sides of the world, both groups are teaching young people STEAM skills, giving insight into many career possibilities, and helping them develop personally and emotionally – all in the environment of competitive esports tournaments, teams, classes, and clubs.

Through the new partnership, the following activities will be implemented in North America and the United Kingdom:

  • Share scholastic approaches and educational programming, including curriculum development and learning about all aspects of the esports ecosystem
  • Jointly develop content for an online student learning program
  • Develop coaching manual for prospective esports coaches
  • Establish an exchange program for coaches, esports managers and teachers
  • Set new standards for the scholastic esports community
  • Create joint competitions, incorporating traditional gamers but featuring a strong focus on diversity and inclusivity
  • Share Beyond the Game challenges which emphasize the career aspects of esports
  • Engage in worldwide events through joint participation
  • Serve on each others boards to provide a broad international perspective

British Esports Association chair Andy Payne OBE commented: We are delighted to partner with NASEF and work on shared learnings around esports in education. Some positive first steps have been taken in this space over the past few years, and by teaming up with another respected organisation we can combine forces, develop new programs faster and work stronger together.

Gerald Solomon, executive director of the Samueli Foundation and founder of NASEF, added: NASEF is excited to be partnering with British Esports to make a difference in the lives of children and young adults through a scholastic and academic approach to esports.

It is rare when two entities have the same set of values and moral compass. NASEF and British Esports are two such organizations. Working together, we can accomplish so much more for children around the world.
