National Citizen Service (NCS)

What is NCS?

National Citizen Service

NCS (National Citizen Service) is a once-in-a-lifetime four week opportunity open to all Year 11 students – it’s great fun and a fantastic way to build skills and experiences needed to help young people stand out in job and university applications. Students will take on new challenges and adventures, make new friends, learn new skills and give something back to their community.

NCS helps young people grow their strengths. Over 750,000 young people have already done NCS.

In 2024 NCS are offering a range of experiences — away from home, local community, and online.

What type of experiences does NCS offer?

  • The five-day away from home experiences are focused on one of three themes: employability ('Boss It'), life skills ('Live It'), or social action ('Change It').
  • The community experiences give young people the opportunity to take part in regular activities in their local area.
  • The online experiences can be done from home — on a laptop or smartphone. There are a range of different formats available, from content which can be consumed at your own pace, to live sessions with other young people and experts. 

Each experience gives young people the opportunity to grow their strengths, build their confidence, learn new skills, and make new friends with people from different backgrounds.

When does NCS run?

NCS runs across a range of dates during the school holidays.

How much does it cost?

The local community and online experiences are free of charge. The price of away from home experience is £95 — and bursaries are available.
