    I did this a long time ago, but I took guitar lessons. The tutor filled out my book each time I went.

    Don't you have to do a certain number of months?

    I think I have to only do 3 months, but I’m not very musical so I don’t think an instrument is for me thanks for the idea tho

    My doing my DofE and my skill is choir (our conductor assesses me)

    Idk you could do something like a crafts club or a musical thing or a science club or whatever. It can be pretty much anything as long your developing some kind of skill and there's someone to assess you. If you're not sure an option is okay, ask your Leader

    I was hopeless. The tutor still filled out the skill book though.

    I'm not sure if it's different now, but when I did D of E I had to do a skill and a sport. I couldn't do either/or.

    I'm not sure, but if you do more than one sport you can probably put one as your sport and one as your skill
