LINK eSports presented at the great Sports Fair

For the eleventh time, the Sports Association of Serbia was the organiser of the great Sports Fair, which lasted from September 23 to 25. The eSports industry was also presented on it, and one of the teams presented at the Sports Fair is LINK eSports – the first student association of this kind.

LINK eSports – promoting the importance of e-sports among pupils and students

LINK eSports is part of the LINK Educational Alliance and was established to promote the importance of e-sports among pupils and students. This association contributes to the development of e-sports in Serbia and the Balkans. Members of LINK eSports are pupils and students of LINKgroup secondary schools and faculties: Savremena Gimnazija, International School, Information Technology High School – ITHS, Information Technology School – ITS and Faculty of Contemporary Arts.

Associate Professor Milena Ilić, the representative of LINK eSports, emphasised that e-sports is a very important part of the business for this company and that they have been working on it since the beginning of 2022. She announced, among other things, that a distance learning programme is being prepared as a contribution to the education of responsible eSports and gaming.

LINK eSports performed at the fair with the Serbian e-Sports Association, with which it established a partnership.

The gaming industry is creating new vacancies

How important the eSports industry is, is shown by data that during two years of the pandemic, gaming recorded a double increase in revenue. It employs a large number of different experts, especially data analysts, then web and game designers, and even programmers, and among them, there are also foreigners from various countries. However, we lack these experts in our country – partly due to them leaving the country, and partly because there are still no schools and educational programmes for those particular occupations and skills.

I am extremely pleased and proud to be the parent of a Savremena student. During my first encounter with the school management, when I asked about my child’s potential enrolment, I saw how much love, enthusiasm and professionalism you put in your work. I was impressed by your approach, ideas and methods. I couldn’t believe something like this existed in our country! It doesn’t take long to realise that this is a school you would recommend to everyone. Creativity, modern technology, top-quality education, and most of all, the humaneness that can be seen throughout the school, make it truly different and worthy of its name – Savremena Gimnazija. With such an approach, the success of this school and, consequently, our children’s success, is unavoidable. Congratulations! Jelena Đorđević, Andrija’s mum
Contemporary in any sense of the word, our school offers functional knowledge and quality preparation for tertiary education in Serbia and abroad. Implementing modern and creative teaching in the classroom, where the teachers’ pedagogy and students’ performance are aligned with the highest academic standards for the high-school finals, our school develops linguistic, mathematical, scientific, artistic, cultural, technical and ICT competence, which is a prerequisite for further education and professional development. Teaching is supported by the interactive whiteboards and educational software, whereas practice exercises research and critical thinking.
