The National Citizen Service (NCS) is a once in a lifetime opportunity for young people. This adventurous and life-enhancing programme is currently available to young people in Year 11 & 12 and places are funded by the government. As the biggest youth development programme in England, it gives young people the opportunity to develop new skills and make new friends whilst having fun over school holidays.
NCS will be visiting Broadoak to present the programme and the team will be on hand to answer any questions about NCS.
When: Monday 7th November 2016 during Year 11 assembly
NB – please pop a note in the calendar to ask your son/daughter about the presentation and ensure you receive the parental information they will be given.
After the presentation all young people will be given the chance to express their interest in the programme. They will also be given further information and programme details via a ‘Sign-Up Pack’ – this will include a sign up form and a supporting parental information letter. Here you will learn the following:
- What does NCS involve: 3-4 weeks during July & August – with multiple start dates
- Why take part in NCS: benefits of the programme including UCAS recognition
- What does NCS cost: a maximum of £50 (additional financial support is available)
- How to secure a place: there are limited spaces on a first come first served basis
During the Summer of 2016, 30 students from Broadoak participated in the scheme and they have recently attended the NCS celebration evening to celebrate their graduation from this programme.
In the interim, if you have any questions or would like to find out more about NCS prior to the presentation your son/daughter receives, please do not hesitate to give the team a call on 01827 316297 or visit www.ncsyes.co.uk.
