Posted by Esports Wales June 19, 2024 in CAREERS

We spoke to Kiran Jones Esports Lecturer from Gower College Swansea on what it’s like working as a Esports Lecture in Wales. Here’s what he had to say: 

Being an Esports lecturer isn’t just about playing games all day; it’s a multi-skill role that requires dedication, expertise, and a passion for both education and gaming. Each day brings new challenges and opportunities to educate and inspire students who are eager to delve into the world of Esports.

My week typically starts with preparing resources and lesson plans to engage students across various topics related to Esports. With a degree in a relevant field and a deep understanding of gaming, I immerse myself in the subject matter to provide comprehensive insights into Esports and its similar industries.

One of the unique aspects of being an Esports lecturer is teaching not only the fundamentals of gaming but also delving into the realms of social media, branding, marketing, and business within the Esports industry. From introducing students to the basics of Esports to exploring the intricacies of social media marketing strategies, the curriculum covers a diverse range of subjects that reflect the multifaceted nature of the Esports industry.

Being an Esports lecturer is an immensely enjoyable yet challenging role that allows me to share my passion for gaming and education with others.

To stay ahead in this dynamic industry, I make sure to stay updated with the latest Esports news and trends, constantly evolving my teaching methods to provide students with the most relevant and up-to-date information. Additionally, being involved in extracurricular events such as Esports teams helps me stay connected with the community and provide valuable real-world experiences to my students.

In conclusion, being an Esports lecturer is more than just a job; it’s a rewarding opportunity to shape the next generation of Esports professionals and enthusiasts. Despite the challenges, the thrill of seeing students’ passion and dedication to Esports makes every day worthwhile. For anyone aspiring to enter this field, my advice would be to combine your love for gaming with a commitment to education, and you’ll find yourself on an exciting and fulfilling journey in the world of Esports lecturing.
