Skill Suggestions

Below is a selection of skills you may want to consider, and some links to Societies and Sports Clubs at Warwick who can help. Remember that you may be able to count an activity you are already doing on a regular basis before starting the award, so be sure to check if that qualifies before thinking of something completely new.

1. Warwick DofE Society Suggestions

Scan through the lists from the sections below, which contain ideas including societies and web resources, with links for further information:

Performing Arts LinkMusic LinkLife Skills LinkCreative Arts Link

2. DofE Skill Section Suggestions

For general guidelines and a huge list of ideas, see DofE Skills List. This list is straight from the DofE website, so if it’s on this list then it’s almost certain that it may be accepted as your Skill Section activity, if you plan it properly.

3. Warwick University Societies

Make sure to check the List of All Warwick SU Societies for further University Societies that may tie in as a Skill. Many of the societies are suitable for your Skill Section, however quite a few may not be (discuss with your DofE Mentor with specific queries).

4. Ask someone from the DofE Society.

Your Mentor may be able to help with activity ideas - if you don't have a mentor or don't know who yours is, ask the Post-Gold Coordinator (Find out who this is) or any member of the current Exec via the Contact Us page.
