    Hi!
    I need to show evidence for these skills to unis as I wanna apply for medicine.

    But I need some ideas as to how I can show these skills / develop these skills for my UCAS form.

    The normal route of sport is out for teamwork, cos I'm crap at any sport, and I can't really get into any school teams or such like, I'm afraid.

    I do not think I can get into debating in my school, as they are quite full this year, filled with English Lit boffins and all the drama productions have gone and been done, so I dunno how I can demonstrate communciation!

    The only thing for teamwork I am involved in would be DofE and Crest Gold Award... though I would like some other stuff too...

    Soooo, err, any ideas for how I can demonstrate these two skills without resorting to sport or debating?

    I'm really quite concerned and am in a bit of a bind as to how to get examples to demonstrate these skills!!
    Any tips / suggestions, preferably out of school would be much appreciated!!!!
    Cheers!

    Many thanks

    Mention any jobs you've had in the past/ have now and how they relate to teamwork and communication. DofE if you do it. Also, you could do some volenteer work, that would definately look impressive.

    It doesn't seem like you need all that much more really, if you can talk about your job, D of E and volentary work.

    you could get involved in a charity- and do fundraising- this will mean you have to work as part of a TEAM to organise it and perhaps you could lead the team and so orgainse meetings etc in which you would have to COMMUNICATE. i know loads of charities need help with fundraising such as NSPCC, childline, places like that.

    However, D of E is probably good enough- just do anything you can- like volunteering to help younger students with their reading, stuff like that...

    Good luck!!

    Do you communicate with the old folks, the people you're working with, the boss's, the visitors, the public?

    Do you work with others in a team either there or in another club/group...doesn't have to be a sporty group.
