Students get busy with Duke of York Awards

We have all heard of the Duke of Edinburgh Awards but what about the Duke of York Awards?  The Duke of York Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award, known as iDEA, aims to equip people with digital and enterprise skills.

During our Thursday enrichment sessions, Miss Hall and her students have been working through the iDEA programme with some already achieving Bronze and Silver.

Miss Hall said “The students have gained some valuable skills by working through The Duke of York Awards, and all of them will be able to put their achievements on their CVs”

Because of our unique timetable at The Macclesfield Academy, Thursday afternoons are given over to Enrichment. Students can choose an activity which will enhance their employability and social skills.
