WHAT'S THE BIG iDEA?

iDEA is a programme that helps you develop digital, enterprise and employability skills for free. Through our series of online challenges and events, you can win career and life enhancing badges, unlock new opportunities and, ultimately, gain industry recognised awards that help you stand out from the crowd. iDEA is about lifelong learning, for anyone who wants to develop their skills.

BADGE YOUR BRILLIANCE

Discover skills you never knew you had and hone the ones you've already got by taking our online challenges. The challenges are split into core categories, each with its own series of badges to be won - citizen, worker, makerentrepreneur and gamer. As well as being fun, these badges will help you show off what you've learned and could, when the time comes, help you land the job you want.

TURN YOUR LEARNING INTO EARNING

When you've taken enough badges in each of the categories, you will be able to earn an Award - a recognised symbol of your hard work, determination and skill. At beginner level, you can achieve the Bronze Award; and when you have mastered the basics, you can work towards the Silver Award, which is set at intermediate level. iDEA aspires to be the digital and enterprise equivalent of The Duke of Edinburgh Award.
