The International Esports Federation (IESF) and the North America Scholastic Esports Federation (NASEF) have agreed a partnership which will see the organisations share educational resources.
NASEF executive director Gerald Solomon has also been appointed chair of the IESF World Esports Education Commission.
Following the agreement, the IESF will exclusively utilise the NASEF's curriculum and programmes to help educators across the globe leverage esports as a tool for education and career preparation.
The IESF plans to use the NASEF's high school and middle school curriculum - which are approved by the United States Department of Education - to develop and implement a global esports education system.
NASEF resources, including programme guidelines and training, will be offered to ISEF members to aid their implementation of education schemes.
"Through this partnership, IESF will be providing significant additional education resources to our 104 member nations," IESF President Vlad Marinescu said.
"Across the world, educators are looking for compelling ways to connect with their students and teach them valuable skills in an enjoyable atmosphere.
"NASEF has spent years developing and refining its scholastic esports system, and this alliance will allow us to leverage that expertise for the benefit of IESF students and athletes worldwide."
The IESF was formed in August 2008 and is one of two organisations claiming to be the international governing body for esports.
NASEF executive director and founder Solomon added: "We’re excited to work with IESF member nations to implement our scholastic Esports programs to positively impact their students and position them to thrive and acquire the skills needed for high-demand careers."
