When completing each section of your DofE, you should develop a programme which is specific and relevant to you. This sheet gives you a list of programme ideas that you could do or you could use it as a starting point to create a Skills programme of your own!
For each idea, there is a useful document giving you guidance on how to do it, which you can find under the category finder on www.DofE.org/skills
It’s your choice...
Developing a skill helps you get better at something you are really interested in and gives you the confidence and ability to use this skill both now and later in life.
