We are delighted to announce that Walsall Studio School Media team (alongside two other studio schools) has been shortlisted for the National  iDEA Award.

iDEA stands for Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award and its founding partners are HRH The Duke of York and Nominet Trust. It is designed to inspire young people to follow their passion, equip them with the digital skills to put that passion into practice, and make them more employable at the same time.

iDEA will support 16-25 year olds in developing a digital business venture enabling them to build prototypes and test the viability of their business idea with real customers in the market. The three business ideas which show the most potential will be awarded £15,000 funding (in addition to £5,000 during the Gold Stage – see below) to develop their prototype into a successful digital business start-up.
