Re: iDEA awards (The Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award)
Our Year 7 students are taking part in The Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award, known as iDEA.
This is an international programme that helps young people develop digital, enterprise and employability skills for free. We ran it very successfully last year for both Years 7 and 8.
Through their series of online challenges, students can win career-enhancing badges, unlock new opportunities and ultimately gain industry-recognised awards that help them stand out from the crowd.
We will be entering students at the Bronze Award level. Students will receive online badges and once they have achieved 250 points they will receive their bronze award certificate.
We will be setting badges as homework for your child to complete in their own time and further enhance their use of ICT. They can be completed on a range of devices.

Please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries regarding your child taking part in these challenges.
