NCS programme offers opportunities
26 January 2018
Last week, we were pleased to welcome a representative for The Challenge into school to speak to Year 11 students.
The Challenge is an organisation that offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for 15-17 year olds in the form of the National Citizen Service (NCS), a government-funded initiative that supports community engagement, social action and social mixing among young people. Through the NCS, students can build skills for work and life whilst taking on new challenges and meeting new friends. The programme involves a short time away from home, trying new things as well as taking part in a team project in the local community.
EHS students who are interested in participating are required to make a direct application with the organisation.
