NCS 2017 Half Term Programme

Fast Track Your Future – All the benefits of NCS in just one week

NCS also runs during half term. The programme is perfect for those with summer commitments as well as those in Year 12 or 13.

If  you’re already booked up for next summer then our Half Term programmes offer the perfect opportunity to gain skills and experience that will impress employers in just one week of your half term. 

Similar to the summer programme, the half term has three phases:

Phase 1 – Get Active
Develop confidence and bond with team mates on an action-packed residential.

Phase 2 – Get Involved
Team mates work together to learn a new skill in sport, media, photography, music, drama, enterprise or art.

Phase 3 – Make Your Mark
Teams design and run a project in the local area.

So why should you consider taking part in NCS during Half Term?

  • Leaves your summer free for existing plans
  • Helps you gain skills for work or study
  • The shorter programme fits into a busy schedule
  • A shorter residential
  • Full support from your mentor throughout the programme
  • A considerate schedule to allow for study/coursework

Remember participants still get free time during the programme so you still have time to relax with your friends.
