UK Bebras competitors will now be able to gain badges and points towards their Duke of York Inspiring Digital Enterprise Bronze Award!
The Duke of York founded The Duke of York Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award (iDEA) to inspire people to develop digital, enterprise and employability skills. iDEA helps give people the opportunity to flourish in the digital economy.
iDEA’s online modules (known as ‘badges’) work anywhere the learner can be online. They also work on any modern device, browser or operating system to enable access for a broad range of people across a spectrum of ages and abilities.
HRH launched the Bronze Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award in January, 2017. So far, there have been almost 8,000 Bronze Award winners and more than 725,000 badges have been completed. The Silver Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award has just been released.
iDEA is a free platform-based vocational tech solution, aiming to help plug the digital skills gap, using an innovative Badge Store concept. This has been curated to help inspire people to become digital citizens, workers, makers, entrepreneurs and gamers to enhance their employability; and to empower them to develop vital life skills. The iDEA Booklet introduces the programme and includes the full curriculum.

Bebras iDEA badges
There will be two kinds of badges available for each age group:
iDEA Citizen badge (obtained by participation)
iDEA Maker badge (obtained by getting in the top 50% or top 10% of students in your age group nationally).
Points range from 5 points to 18 points depending on the age group and the achievement level.
Codes to add these special badges to your iDEA completed badge list will be distributed to teachers after the Official November Bebras Challenge.
