If you started your DofE Skills course a while's 3 tips to help you along

If you signed up to our course a while back and haven’t yet finsished, don’t despair.

It doesn’t matter when you started your DofE Skills course, or whether it’s for your Bronze DofE or your Silver DofE - all that matters is that you finish it! If you have taken a break because life got in the way of all those extra curricular activities then here’s some tips to get you back on track.

  1. Schedule some time to read through what you have completed already, it will put you in the right frame of mind.

  2. Don’t despair if your products don’t look like everyone elses. One of the main positives about the DofE award is that it is yours alone - you work hard to achieve it and should never compare yourself to others. Soaps and bath bombs come in all shapes, sizes and colours. Some people have a creative flair, some don’t. The products still work exactly the same!

  3. If you are struggling to find time to fit everything in - schedule an hour the week after next. There is no immediate need to make something. If you have lots of homework or activities, try to find a day where you have very little. If you find a whole weekend free, schedule in to do a couple of hours. The benefit of our course is that it is completely flexible and you get to choose when to do it.

If you really find you are stuck with something - get in touch. We will always do our best to help anyone looking for support. Sometimes it can be overwheling with so much to juggle outside of school - but just take a step back. Your DofE award will look fantastic on your CV - you may not appreciate now, but believe us, it really will!
