National Citizen Service

National Citizenship Service (NCS) is a way for 15 to 17 year olds living in England and Northern Ireland to make extraordinary friendships, learn new skills and create unforgettable memories.  The inspiring programme "Imagine You Can", is an opportunity for young people to shape their future and challenges them to give something back to their community. 

The NCS programme takes place outside of term time in the spring, summer and autumn.  There are four phases:

Phase 1 - Adventure

Phase 2 - Future

Phase 3 - Making A Difference

Phase 4 - Graduation

At the end of the programme students are encouraged to use all the new skills they have learnt to make changes in their own community.  Past students have continued with the good work, putting social action projects together and even starting their own social enterprises. 

Recruitment for the 2014 programme is taking place now.  Students at Sacred Heart should speak to Mr Bowater.  For more information download the programme fact sheet.
