Hi 👋

The programme is 4 weeks long and you can find out more about them here: http://bit.ly/381Zsl4
We find that most people make friends on the first day of meeting each other and you can speak to your local team closer to the time if you would like to share a tent/room with your friends.

We hope this helps and if you have any further questions please let us know 😃

Thanks,
Pat ✌️

Hi,

NCS activities can vary depending on which part of the country you are in. Our local teams organise your experience based on what's within close proximity of your area. If you would like to know what activities would be specific to you, we suggest contacting your local team. Please see videos on what to expect and what to pack below:

What to pack - http://bit.ly/3bnGQhA

We hope that this helps and if you have any other questions just hit us up here 😃

Thanks,
Pat ✌️

Hi NCS,
I was wondering if it is possible to leave after the first two weeks and still get the certificate? Also, what does the 4th week entail (on the website it just says party week:confused:)?
Thanks

Hey 👋

We can confirm that the NCS programme is 4 weeks long and each week has something different to give. In order to complete the programme and received a certificate, you will need to complete the entire thing.

The 3rd & 4th week is the chance to create and deliver your social action project in your local area, whereas the party you are referring to is the Graduation day where you collect your certificates and celebrate your achievements with your team.

If you would like to know more about the 4 stages of NCS you can watch the vid below or you can ask us and well do our best to resolve this for you 😃



Thanks
