It is part of the governments youth development policy and it gives young people the chance to spend some of their holidays undertaking exciting and challenging activities.
NCS is an outstanding opportunity which will allow youngsters to develop confidence, learn new skills and meet new people. The aim of the programme is to give young people the opportunity to get ahead by having fresh experiences and learning new skills such as leadership, problem solving and team building that are valuable to employers and further education organisations. The programme has been designed to enhance young people’s CV’s and UCAS application forms.
The Autumn NCS programme is open to Year 12 students only and is largely delivered across the half term week from Mon 28th October – Sat 2nd November 2013. The first three days consist of a residential based at Danbury Activity Centre, Essex where they will experience a range of challenging outdoor adventure activities such as archery, kayaking, hi/low ropes, rock-climbing and orienteering, whilst the remaining days will be based at Leyton Orient Football Club preparing and planning a social action project in their local community.
