I did it 3 years ago and I mostly enjoyed it, even though the last 2 weeks were a bit dead (the volunteering phase). But yeah, keep in mind I went pre-covid so idk how it will be now. I advise bringing a friend and making sure your on the same team if you can, as getting along with your team affects a lot of how the experience is ngl. I was lucky enough to get along with pretty much everyone on my team although I wish I brought a friend too as it would have made it more fun I think. Also idk if it affects your CV that much but it does give you something to say about volunteering/helping others I guess. Have fun if you decide to go!

Oersonally I'd find some local volunteering - I've not heard good things.

That’s ncs propaganda... it’s only good for a cv if u have nothing else (ie u have *****y gcses)

I would recommend ncs bc it’s an experience... but whether u like it or not will depend on ur group tbh
