BCA encourages students to get the most out of their half term by joining the National Citizen Service (NCS) for the lessons that can’t be learnt in the classroom. It offers the opportunity to meet new people, make life-long friends and gain new CV skills.
NCS is a once in a lifetime opportunity open to all young people aged 15 – 17. Through a three part programme taking place during summer holidays or over the autumn half term, students take on new challenges from getting active in the outdoors, skills training from industry professionals and leading social action campaigns in the local community.
The programme is designed to build students’ independence and confidence to prepare them for their future; 85% of participants feel confident trying new things after the programme. As places at university, for apprenticeships and within the work place become increasingly competitive, we know admissions tutors and employers are looking for skills they really value: teamwork and leadership.
NCS have provided more than 200,000 young people with these unique benefits to boost their personal development; 9/10 participants believe that NCS has given them the chance to develop skills that will be useful in the future.
What’s more, students will never be asked to pay more than £50 to participate.
