The aim of NCS is to give young people aged 15-17 the opportunity to get ahead by having fresh experiences and learning new skills that are valuable to employers and further education organisations. It is also a chance to have fun and meet other young people in a safe and structured environment.  Whether you're a daredevil or creative genius, talkative or more reserved, you'll be surprised by how much you're actually capable of, coming away with a host of new skills and bags of confidence.

NCS has made my summer incredible. I met some amazing people while doing this course and would 100% recommend to anyone. The staff are so lovely and understanding and I miss it already! Such an amazing experience, especially for the price :)” - Wave 5 Participant, Summer 2018 

NCS gave me the opportunity to reinvent myself as a better, more confident person with the skills I need to not only survive, but also succeed in life.” - Wave 3 Participant, Summer 2018 

Both my daughters have now attended NCS and both have loved the experience. They have more confidence and drive. The boost in self esteem it gives them to engage in worthwhile causes is fantastic. The team leaders were an excellent support” - Wave 4 Parent, Summer 2018
