Year 11 Students - Find out about National Citizen Service (NCS)

National Citizen Service (NCS) is a once-in-a lifetime opportunity for students in years 11 and 12. NCS is a government-funded programme which helps young people build skills for work and life and is also an opportunity for them to meet new people and connect with their local community. Through a three part programme of activities taking place during summer holidays or autumn half term, NCS participants take on new challenges including outdoor activities, skills training from industry professionals and leading social action campaigns in their local community.

For Year 11 students:

The programme is recognised by UCAS and can strengthen university, college and job applications. Nine out of ten participants believe NCS has given them the chance to develop skills that will be useful in the future.  
In your area, NCS is delivered by The Challenge which is the country’s largest provider of NCS and since 2009, over 300,000 young people have taken part in NCS.

"The Arts are about life in all its diversity. They can help our students to see a whole array of problems in a proper perspective. They strengthen human relationships and can make them tolerant and understanding of the attitudes and opinions encountered amongst a variety of people. The Arts encourage the very best in shared experiences of many kinds.
