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. To find out more, and sign up, access the website here: idea.org.uk or see Mr Sycamore in IT1
Southam College are collecting for the homeless this Christmas. With recent weather conditions, you could make a huge difference to someone’s Christmas. We are asking all students and staff to donate at least one pair of gloves for someone less fortunate than ourselves. Together we can change someone’s Christmas! ‘Alone we can do so little; together we can achieve so much’. #BritishValues
