A once in a lifetime unique opportunity for 15-17 year olds.
NCS helps build skills for work and life; you’ll be introduced to new challenges, working in a team where you’ll create new friendships.
Our programme operates during the summer and half term for young people in Bedford and Somerset. The programme involves a 10 day stay away from home and then taking part in a team project, devised by you, in your local community!
NCS works in 4 phases:
Activate NCS takes around 15-17 days to complete in the summer holidays!
DIGITAL MARKETING AWARD
Take part in our multi media award during your time with Activate NCS. During your time with us you will be asked to film and photograph your journey, culminating in a group presentation. Your clip will be edited and marketed in an effort to gain the greatest “hits” “likes” “tweets” and “shares” whilst with Activate NCS. You will be shown how to use social media effectively to market your own product, as well as documenting all the great things you will take part in on NCS with Activate.
ACTIVATE SPORTS LEADERSHIP AWARD
The Activate Leaders Awards give young people a first-hand experience of coaching and learning leadership skills through a combination of theory exercises and practical on-course experiences. Leaders will plan and deliver a variety of activity sessions, all with the help of their on-site mentor. It is a fantastic opportunity to improve your CV, University application or record of achievement to make sure you stand out from the crowd.
