A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for young people is on offer for all year 11 and 12 West Bridgford students.

These students are being offered a chance to sign up to a thrilling programme of outdoor challenges and community work while building on their skills for the future.

Nottingham Forest in the Community have teamed up with the National Citizen Service (NCS) to help young people – aged 16 and 17 – boost their CV while having a fantastic time and making new friends.wbs2

It is a three-part programme, taking place during the school holidays, focusing on skills for education, work and life including:

  • An outward-bound residential - a stay in the Peak District, featuring exciting outdoor challenges such as abseiling, canoeing and caving
  • Skills workshops - working with local businesses and charities to develop employability and entrepreneurial skills, and covering community issues such as homelessness or crime.
  • Community project - teams plan and deliver their own community project, based on a charity or project of their choice. This can be anything from fundraising for a local charity, setting up a youth project or redecorating a community centre.

It costs just £40 for our summer programme; however we are offering a special deal of £20 only for The West Bridgord School students - great value when you know the government pays more than £1,200 for each young person to go on NCS. We have had nearly 50 West Bridgford School students take part in NCS in the last year and we are keen to get many more involved.wbs1

Prime Minister David Cameron said “NCS is going to teach them (young people) what it means to be socially responsible. Above all it’s going to inspire a generation of young people to appreciate what they can achieve and how they can be a part of the big society.”

To find out more information and sign up, visit, the school website or speak with our link person in school, Ms J Williams.
