iDEA (Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award) is an industry recognised and accredited national programme to develop your digital and enterprise skills, while enhancing your CV.

iDEA is for adults and young people, and it's free. You can access the programme any time, and you can learn on your own, in a group, or together as a family - from your phone, tablet or computer.

How does it work?

iDEA is a digital and enterprise version of The Duke of Edinburgh Award. For every new skill mastered, iDEA learners are awarded a digital badge.

There are 3 levels of Award - Bronze, Silver and Gold. Each badge carries points and when you earn enough points, you are awarded the Bronze, Silver or Gold Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award.

The badges are flexible and fun, and they cover a wide range of bite size topics from cyber security and video editing, to coding.

We are offering everyone in Wirral who takes part in iDEA an exclusive Digital Wirral badge to start you on your iDEA journey. The badge shows that you are a proud digital achiever, and counts towards your bronze award.
