The Skills Section

This gives you the opportunity to develop social and practical skills and to develop personal interests.  Ideally your choice should be both challenging and enjoyable and give you the opportunity to focus on doing something which you might not otherwise think of doing.  Visit the Skills section of the DofE website for further information. You can download two very useful pdf files - a programme planner and a list of Skills section ideas. There are some additional local ideas below.
