What is NCS?

NCS offers young people aged between 15 – 17yrs* the opportunity to build new skills, take on new challenges and meet new people.

Watch a video about NCS

NCS takes place outside of term time in summer and autumn – each one is a little different but equally amazing. There are plenty of dates and the experience runs nationally so there’s nothing standing between you and the awesomeness of NCS. We run NCS across Teeside, North Tyneside, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. Below is an overview of the programme but for more information about our specific opportunities and to get signed up phone the NCS contact centre on 0800 197 8010 or visit the NCS website  to sign up and feel unstoppable!

Want an unforgettable Summer?

Well, look no further! Take part on NCS this Summer and indulge in activities that’ll help you make up for some of the time you lost over lockdown. You’ll meet a bunch of new people and have a load of fun, gain skills that are great for the future and your CV, try things you’ve never tried before, show off your creative side and boost your confidence.
