Introducing the NCS to Sixth Form

By 5th June 2019Latest news

Starting in September 2019, we are excited to be introducing the National Citizen Service (NCS) programme, into our sixth form curriculum.

The NCS is a personal and social development programme designed to give young individuals a positive and memorable experience whilst building on valuable life-skills. Helping them to feel challenged, changed, engaged and empowered!

“You’re young and you have huge potential. You have what it takes to succeed in new challenges, embrace new experiences and make your mark on the world.”

As part of our new sixth form induction and studies, students will have the opportunity to meet new people whilst gaining essential skills that will help to give them the confidence they need to seize their future goals. It looks great on CV’s and personal statements too! It is the perfect way to introduce them to the UTC, whilst simultaneously bringing together the sixth form students through team-building exercises.

From starting at the UTC the NCS programme will be incorporated via the following;

  • Tuesday 3rd September – Year 12 induction day where members of the programme will on hand to speak to our students, to introduce them to the exciting activities they will be offering
  • Tuesday 17th to Friday 20th September – All sixth form students who have not previously signed up to the NCS, will have a three night residential stay where they will experience adventure activities designed to challenge and take them outside of their comfort zones
  • Monday 23rd to Friday 27th September – All students will spend the week taking part in a five day programme based at Glanford Park, which will combine personal skills development sessions with confidence and teamwork skills. Finally they will launch a social action project based on an issue they feel passionate about as a chance to make a real difference in the community

Upon completion of the NCS Programme, students will receive a certificate as proof of their efforts that can be used on UCAS applications and throughout future employment, followed by a graduation event to celebrate their achievements.

“It’s not just the activities that make NCS so special – it’s the people you meet and the skills you gain too.”
