More information for parents


NCS is a 4-week experience that you don’t want to miss. Designed specially for 16 and 17 year olds, the NCS experience will give you a clearer idea of what you want from your future. So what are you waiting for?

During the summer of 2020, we are running a total of 5 waves with limited spaces available. Spaces are allocated on a first come first served basis, so don’t delay and sign up today. NCS is subsidised by the government, so it will only cost £50 for the whole 4-week experience - it costs the government £1,500, so this opportunity of a lifetime is also a real bargain! We don't want money to be a problem though, so we do offer confidential bursaries to make it easier for you in some circumstances.

How can I get involved?

If you're a young person looking to go on the programme you can sign up here. If you're a parent or carer wanting to find out more about the programme, this page is the place for you. If you're a teacher or community leader who wants us to do an assembly, talk or presentation about NCS, email programmes Manager, Will, at [email protected] or call us on 0114 2999 210, we'd be happy to help!

Success so far...

Many of the young people we take on NCS find the experience really rewarding in many different ways. Zain, who did the programme with Element Society in 2019, has started volunteering with Element when we do our NCS assemblies in schools, he says:

NCS was great for my confidence and developing my CV. I've been helping spread the word about NCS because it's done so much for me, I want it to help other people too!
