The Talent Foundry (TTF) has partnered with iDEA to offer bespoke achievement badges for participation in TTF-Dell programmes.
The Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award, known as iDEA, is an award-winning programme that is helping people around the world to develop digital and enterprise skills for FREE through iDEA.org.uk - a learning platform which offers bite-size, interactive modules that you can try on any device, anywhere you can be online. You will earn a digital badge, and points for every module that you complete on iDEA.
Once you’ve got going, you can download, print and share a portable, digital ‘career passport’ known as the iDEA Record of Achievement. With enough iDEA points, you can win industry-recognised Awards that will help you to stand out from the crowd. Bronze is beginner level, Silver is intermediate and Gold is advanced. Students participating in any of the TTF-Dell facilitated programmes will receive a special iDEA badge!
There's a huge range of iDEA badges to choose from, just pick one that interests you and get started!
Welcome to The Talent Foundry’s Dell webpage, offering a number of exciting and engaging activities for secondary school students.
The Talent Foundry and Dell have been working together for a number of years to help young people reach their full potential, and share in the common good. As part of the Dell Progress Made Real plan, we run a range of programmes based on the idea that technology should be a driver of human progress.
On this page, you will be able to access key virtual opportunities and resources, and hear directly from Dell professionals - all valuable activities for helping your school achieve the Gatsby Benchmarks. Scroll down to explore what is available, and please don’t hesitate to contact the Schools Liaison team if you have any questions or would like to request further information.
For schools in The Talent Foundry's network, we are offering the opportunity to request a virtual talk with employees from Dell. Talks from Dell could include career routes into tech to a more specific tech focused topic such as AI or Marketing. These talks are available for students in Year 9 and above.
To find out if your school is eligible for support from The Talent Foundry, please contact our Schools Liaison Team.
Once students have completed The Big Idea project, you are able to submit their projects to the Dell team for bespoke feedback and comments. Students can also claim an iDEA badge for their completion of the project.
The Talent Foundry is proud to work closely with a large network of disadvantaged schools across the country with high levels of deprivation. As part of our mission to level the playing field of opportunity, we work exclusively with the schools that most need extra support and have high proportions of students eligible for Pupil Premium funding relative to schools in their local authority. To find out if your school is eligible for our facilitated programmes, please contact our Schools Liaison Team.
