Working on iDEA (“Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award”)

Year 9 have been working on iDEA (“Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award”) in one of their two ICT lessons this term – it is an employer led Award which is the internationally recognised, digital equivalent of the Duke of Edinburgh award. It has bronze and silver awards and pupils complete badges in a wide variety of digital, enterprise and employability topics.  Just a few examples of badges are: fake news, cyber security, Python programming, web designer, digital portfolios, video editing, problem solving, the art of selling, as well as numerous others.  We have four pupils who have completed their Bronze award already and they are now progressing well on their Silver.  Pictured are Alex, Mabel, Emilie and Bethany.
