National Citizen Service (NCS)

If you’re 15-17 years old and looking to boost your employability skills, learn life hacks, and make a difference in your community, you’re in luck.

Our National Citizen Service (NCS) community programmes are open to students in years 11-12 (and anyone up to the age of 23 with an EHCP) and offers experiences focussing on:

  • Employability Boost – Routes into employment, visiting Universities, and mock interview practice
  • Life Skills Success – Such as budgeting, mental health, independent living, and first aid
  • Make a Difference – Volunteering and social action to make a positive impact on the world

It’s free to take part. Programmes are normally 4 days (9am to 5pm) and take place in the school holidays in Leicester and Loughborough.

Please note none of our NCS programmes involve an overnight residential. The 1 week overnight residential programmes are run by another organisation. Information can be found via the national NCS website.
