Best thing ever. If you’re the correct age do it and make memories that’ll last forever!
Mani, 2016 NCSer
NCS is a three-part programme for 15-17 year olds. It’s perfect for boosting CV experience, personal statements, and UCAS forms. It’s also an unforgettable experience which builds confidence and independence. We run the programme during summer, autumn half term, and autumn term time.
The programme is a government-funded initiative that brings together schools, community organisations, businesses and individuals to build a stronger and more cohesive society. It never costs more than £50, and financial assistance can be requested. The programme’s three parts are:
- In Week 1, you will stay in group accommodation, build your confidence and face your fears by taking on your own Personal Challenge. You could try your hand at abseiling, rafting, hiking, rock climbing, kayaking and more. Meeting new people along the way!
- In Week 2, experience independent living whilst learning new skills in creative communication and enterprise with an industry professional. Get involved for your chance to apply your skills with a local charity or organisation to discover what you’re made of!
- During week 3, you return home to use your new skills to design a local social action project and make your mark in your local community! You’ll pitch your idea to a panel of judges to gain expert advice to turn your project into reality. Your actions can have a big impact: Be The Change!
