Last chance for NCS

26 June 2013


The SWFC Community Programme is encouraging 16-17-year-olds to take part in the National Citizen Service scheme, with limited places left for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

NCS is a government youth programme, with the aim of bringing young people together within their community.

It involves youngsters taking part in various activities, ranging from abseiling and other water sports, to community projects in and around Sheffield over a four week period.

Students will also have the chance to create their own community project to help improve their local area.

In addition to helping improve teamwork and communication skills, NCS will boost participant’s CVs giving them a considerable head-start when applying for university or job vacancies.

Matt Smith, a 2012 NCS graduate, stated how the scheme helped him improve his confidence, meet new people and develop his future prospects.

He said: "It allowed me to overcome my fear of heights, develop social skills and make new friends. NCS has led to me gaining an apprenticeship in the club’s community scheme."


Places on the NCS scheme cost £35, with £25 refunded to the applicant after the completion of the project.


With limited free places left on the scheme, both the SWFCCP and the NCS are asking students from Bradfield, Forge Valley, Stocksbridge, Chaucer, Parkwood, Ecclesfield, Firth Park and Hinde House schools to apply quickly.
