The iDEA award

As we enter 2019, why not make it your New year’s resolution to improve your digital skills? A great way to do this is through the iDEA award.

What is the iDEA award?

The Duke of York’s Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award (iDEA) is an accredited programme which helps you develop your digital, enterprise and employability skills. For each completed module, you’ll receive a Digital badge to mark your achievement. Badges can be earned in subjects such as social media, cyber security and coding. Each badge has a points value, which will help you work towards Bronze, Silver and Gold awards. You can access the modules on any device which can access the internet.
