NCS is a government-funded programme for 16- and 17-year-olds, designed to push them out of their comfort zones and boost the skills they need for college, work and beyond. We have been successfully delivering the NCS through the EFL Trust for 8 years and have seen lots of changes to the programme, particularly within the last 18 months due to COVID-19 and the challenges it came with. Although the programme had a slightly different feel to it this year, the young people who embarked on their NCS journey with us this summer still got the opportunity to have lots of challenging and meaningful experiences whilst boosting vital skills and gaining a recognised qualification. We supported 45 young people through the programme as they chose to support local organisations and charities including Queen’s Meadow Care Home, Leo’s Neonatal Charity and Pools Perishables, donating thousands of voluntary hours and hundreds of pounds.
We are proud to say that this summer, HUCSF finished top of the entire country for NCS customer satisfaction, with 100% positive feedback. We now look forward to planning next summer’s programmes! If you are in Year 11 or Year 12 and would like to get involved next summer, check out www.wearencs.com/sign-up-to-ncs or contact Tracy on 07497204960.
