We are excited to be working with the National Citizen Service (NCS) again this year to deliver an unforgettable summer experience for students in Year 11.
The NCS programme offers young people, aged 16-17, a once in a lifetime opportunity to do something meaningful with their summer break, as well as a chance to develop skills and take on new challenges that will set them up for adult life. They'll also do something good for their local community, carrying out a social action project to support a cause they care about.
A place on NCS is worth around £1200, however, thanks to government funding for the programme, NCS only ask for a contribution of £50 to cover some basic costs.
NCS want to ensure that everyone can take part, therefore, there are bursaries available if you need some help to cover the cost.
Bursaries are available to those who are either:
- Eligible for free school meals
- On an EHCP
- In or have recently left care
- A young carer
For more information, or to sign up, please visit the NCS website, here.
