Skills Section

Ensure you select a skill from the ideas sheet in the link below and remember that you need to show improvement so it will be preferable (and more interesting and challenging for you) to do a different activity each time you progress up the DofE award levels.

Be careful: make sure you pick an activity from the link below as many things you may consider to be a skill are not listed under the games and recreation heading as DofE considers them to be physical eg team sports like football, hockey and rugby, boxing, golf, horse riding to name a few. If it is not on the skills list you MUST ask us or submit via eDofE in advance or it will not count as a skill.


Don't forget to complete an activity log so that you keep track of when exactly you spend time on developing your skills.
