The Skills Section is all about developing practical and social skills and personal interests. By developing a new talent, it should also boost your self-esteem, and you may learn how to better set and rise to a challenge. You could already be doing an activity you can count as a Skill, and working towards your Skills Section can be enjoyable too.
Almost anything you do for a hobby can be used for the skill section, from playing a musical instrument to website design, all you need is someone to assess you on your achievements. Contact us first to check it's okay, and it will also be checked when you input it onto eDofE. It’s the responsibility of your Skills Mentor and DofE leaders to check that your choice of activity is acceptable before you start your activity
