What is NCS all about?

NCS exists to engage, unite and empower young people, building their confidence so they can go out there and achieve their dreams, no matter where they’re from or what their background. From the life skills they develop to the friends they make, our ambition is clear – we want to give teenagers an opportunity to unleash their potential, to build their self-belief and get them prepped for life after school.

Learn by Design are managed and supported by NCS Trust, the central team who are constantly working to make sure we deliver the most impactful experience we can, to as many young people as possible.

Spaces on our Summer ‘22 experience are now open and on sale...don’t miss out, register today!

Think long sunny days (probably some wet ones too, who are we kidding), hanging with new mates, having a week of adventures staying away from home that you’ll talk about for years, a week of doing some good in your community, and becoming the best version of yourself.
