JOB 100%
DO NOT DO NCS. It’s a genuine waste of time and I really regret going.
It’s overrated asf and anyone would much rather be earning that moneyyy and staying at home in your own comfort.

Depends on your preference, tbh. I did ncs and really enjoyed it and made friends etc, but the other replies in the thread seem to hate it - I think it depends on your location. Maybe if you have any older friends who have done it in your area, see how it was, and if it was rubbish then go for the job

i enjoyed ncs but it was a massive waste of time - i don't think its valuable cos there are so many teenagers who do it - there's no skill involved at all

Hi, I'm also in year 11, and I'm doing NCS in the summer, because although some people have given it bad reviews, loads of my older friends have done it and loved it, so it depends on the person really, you could always get a job in the Christmas/October holidays, this year anyway, or after NCS you could get a job because we do have a really long summer. Hope this helps

I personally enjoyed NCS too. I became the leader for a project we were doing to raise money for SportsAble (a disability organisation). In the end, we raised over £150.

I did NCS and it was it was good, not sure every place might differ but I thought it was a good way to spend a summer. I went with 4 prior friends which could have been why mine was good.

If you do choose to do it, just make sure you choose the group of friends you go with wisely

How come you didn’t like it? Talking about me, I chose the wrong group of friends to go with and it triggered my anxiety back.

Oh no! Why was it so bad?
Our location was horrible.
The rooms were disgusting.
Everyone treated it as a place to find boyfriends and girlfriends.
And there was no WiFi. (That isn’t a major point but we were promised WiFi and we didn’t get it).
We were promised many activities but we literally did like 2 engaging activities.
Overall, everything that was promised was just pure lies and it’s 4 weeks I wish I had back. And it was just a horrible experience.
However, I do know that some people enjoy it a lot, so it just depends on you and your location

SUMMMMERRR JOB
personally NCS was awful and had no benefits to it. I went for one week and quit because itvwas horrendous and I wish I had gotten then experience from job instead as job experience will help your CV more than NCS.
