Telford: The Duke Of York iDEA, Bronze Award 5 day workshop programme

18th February @ 9:30 am - 22nd February @ 3:30 pm

The Duke of York iDEA Programme

The Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award (iDEA) is a digital and enterprise version of The Duke of Edinburgh Award in which participants complete a series of challenges to achieve an award at Bronze, Silver or Gold level. For every new skill and learning experience mastered, iDEA participants gain a digital badge worth a number of points. When sufficient points have been accumulated, participants are then awarded their Bronze, Silver or Gold Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award.

The iDEA programme is free for all to participate in and badges are awarded by completing online challenges, or by attending workshops in specific areas run by iDEA partner organisations. Learners participating in certain Tablet Academy Workshops will qualify for iDEA badges towards their Bronze Award (250 points).
