National Citizen Service Programme

A message from the National Citizen Service for JCC parents:

The National Citizen Service is a youth programme designed for young people aged 15-17. Completion of this programme is recognised by Universities and employers across the UK. By taking part in NCS your young person will benefit from having the opportunity to try new activities, gain life skills and make their own independent project.

We are offering this exciting opportunity at Joseph Chamberlain Sixth Form College!

In 2020 the programme continues to run and we are working with the NCS to provide Joseph Chamberlain College ONLY groups. This is brilliant for our students as it means the programme is held at JCC, in an environment students are familiar with in terms of travel and in terms of health and safety. As a college our Senior Leaders have met with NCS to ensure the programme risk assessment is in line with ours and maintains social distancing and COVID-19 safety.

NCS ran the first JCC programme of 2020 during October half term. Over 30 JCC students took part in the three day programme. The first day was held at Ackers on Golden Hillock Road, where students took part in outdoor activities like skiing and archery. The next two days were held at Joseph Chamberlain College.

NCS regularly visit the College to recruit students and we are planning on running a further programme in December 2020. We will advertise upcoming visits with students via their College emails. For more information about the NCS visit their website
