NCS is a once-in-a lifetime experience open to all 15 - 17 year olds across England and Northern Ireland that helps fast track your teen’s future.

It is a unique two or three-week full-time programme focused around fun and discovery, plus 30 hours committed to a social action project that benefits both young people and society. On this programme, participants build skills for work and life, while taking on new challenges and adventures, making new friends, learning new skills and contributing to their community.

NCS takes place out of school time during the autumn, spring and summer terms and represents great value for money for parents as participants spend time away from home with all meals and activities covered. Government backing means the most you will ever pay for NCS is £50 for the whole experience, including food, activities... everything. Your teen will learn how to be self-sufficient, developing new life skills such as first aid, managing a budget and cooking for themselves and their new friends.

Each year the NCS team come to school in the Autumn term to recruit Year 12 students for their Autumn Half term programme and in the Spring term to recruit for their Summer Programme. For more information please visit the NCS website:
