What’s the Big iDEA?

iDEA is a programme that helps you develop digital and enterprise skills for free. Through a series of online challenges and events, you can earn career-enhancing badges, unlock new opportunities and, ultimately, gain industry 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 a series of online challenges. The challenges are split into four main categories and will help you show off what you’ve learned and could, when the time comes, help you land the job you want.
iDEA aspires to be the digital and enterprise equivalent of The Duke of Edinburgh Award.

Together we can change someone’s Christmas! ‘Alone we can do so little; together we  can achieve so much’. #BritishValues
