The Skills Section – “the mind!”
The Skills section is all about developing practical and social skills and personal interests. By choosing to develop a particular skill you are not only developing a new talent but you will also boost your self-esteem, develop practical and social skills and learn how to set and rise to a challenge. If this isn’t enough, it should also be good fun too!
From podcasting to playing a musical instrument, fine art to website design, there’s an endless list of the types of skills you can do, so have a chat with your Leader and other people in your community to find out what’s on offer!
Be careful if you are considering taking up something in the “Games and Recreation” category of the DofE Skills section. Sports specifically listed in the DofE physical list cannot be followed as a skill unless honing leadership, officiating or appreciation skills i.e. from the side-line!
