The Overworld Academy was created and developed under the Overworld umbrella to offer a range of free educational resources for learners with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. Overword's core business involves esports, gaming and media content creation and utilising the state-of-the-art equipment available including our gaming arena, VR, green screen technology and multi-media production suites we have developed a customised study programme of six short courses accredited by ASDAN. These courses are offered completely free of charge to local SEND groups and home-schooled learners to develop a range of technical skills but also to develop personal, social, communication skills and self-confidence.
Alongside this we have been delivering the AIM Level 3 qualifications in esports. Thanks to the excellent support and encouragement from our New Business Development Lead Mick Woodward and our Centre Lead Katharine Pearce Overworld now uses the AIM IF kitemark to demonstrate an assurance of excellence and outstanding quality of provision for our educational programmes.
