Our NCS Projects

NCS is the government’s leading youth project aimed at equipping 16 and 17 year old with new skills ready for the workplace or further education.

At Derby County Community Trust we welcome around 1.000 teenagers a year to take part in an unforgettable experience where they learn to be more independent, confident and innovative.

We deliver a four-week project each summer and a one-week project over October half term which provide a number of workshops and activities all designed to increase communication, teamwork and time management skills ready for future application!

A Youth Programme Like No Other

Designed specially 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’ll also get a taste for independence and pick up skills that’ll help you smash your future goals. 

And if that’s not enough for you, you’ll also be given a platform to have your voice heard and pursue a passion project.
