NCS

Do something amazing and take part in NCS with Bristol City Robins Foundation.

What is NCS?

NCS this year is a two- or three-week experience - filled with some great activities. You can sign up with your mates, or you can sign-up without them, make new ones and get everything out of the programme that YOU want to and take on some exciting challenges. Designed especially for 16 and 17 year olds, the NCS experience will give you a clearer idea of what you want from your future.

On NCS, you’ll mix with a new crowd, and take on fresh challenges together. Before you know it, you’ll be rooting for each other, as you all tackle your own little hurdles. Along the way, you will also get a taste for independence and pick up skills that’ll help you smash your future goals. And if that is not enough for you, you’ll also be given a platform to have your voice heard and pursue a passion project.The NCS experience might last just a few weeks, but the impact? That lasts a LOT longer.

PROGRAMME DATES

12th July – 3 week programme with residential -

26th July - 3 week  programme with residential

16th August – 2-week programme local to Bristol with no residential

3 WEEK MODEL

Week 1 RESIDENTIAL - Taking part in activities such as high ropes, water sports, rock climbing and abseiling. These activities will take place in a residential setting. You will develop a range of leadership and teamwork skills, whilst building your confidence and trying new things. But do not worry, you’ll never be forced to do anything you don’t want to do. In the evenings, there is plenty of down time for you to relax, catch up with your friends, call home, watch Love Island or the Euros.

Week 2 –  Phase 2 is all about making the most out of your independence. We will be hosting experts who will deliver workshops designed for you to learn and apply skills needed for your future. Whether that is gaining the confidence you need to nail an interview, exploring the things that make your CV or UCAS application stand out, or making sure you know how to prepare and cook good food.

Week 3 –  Phase 3 is where you are now in charge. You and the rest of your team get the chance to plan, develop and implement a social action project. This is my favourite part of the programme because I get to see young people making a difference and being passionate about things that they care about and want to make better.
