For your skills section, you need to choose an activity that will allow you to prove you have broadened your understanding and increased your expertise in your chosen skill.

It should not be a physical activity, for example horse riding, as this counts towards your Physical section, however, you could choose to learn about caring for horses.

You need to have an assessor for this section, who fills out a report at the end of your time. This could be a football coach, a music teacher or your form teacher at school. Find out more info here: https://www.dofe.org/do/assessors/

You need to be sure you have completed the full timescale for each of your activities for each section and your assessor must agree!

To “pass” the award you need to login to edofe and complete details of all your activities to finish your Award. Your assessor will need to provide a report. Give this link to your assessor when you have finished your section: https://www.dofe.org/assessor/
