iDEA is a national project that helps you badge your brilliance. Through our series of online challenges and events, you can win career-enhancing badges, unlock new opportunities and, ultimately, gain nationally recognised awards that help you stand out from the crowd.

Discover skills you never knew you had and hone the ones you've already got by taking our online challenges. The challenges are split into four main categories, each with its own series of badges to be won - citizen, worker, maker and entrepreneur. As well as being fun, these badges will help you show off what you've learned and could, when the time comes, help you land the job you want.

This is a fantastic initiative by The Duke of York to help young people in the UK and ROI to learn more about the world of coding and CoderDojo. Badges have been recently created by members of the CoderDojo community for the iDEA Inspiring Digital Enterprise Awards!

When you've taken enough badges in each of the categories, you can gain iDEA Bronze Award - a recognised symbol of your hard work, determination and skill. You'll then be able to take new challenges and badges that will unlock a Silver Award and then, the ultimate prize, the iDEA Gold Award.
