What if I need to miss some parts of NCS?

NCS is best when the full programme is completed and we therefore encourage participants to avoid any absences. However, where this is unavoidable, we ask the following:

1. Try to move onto a different programme where you will not need to miss any time.

2. Any time taken off will need to be made up by volunteering in order for the participant to graduate.

3. Parents/guardians are responsible for any travel arrangements relating to the absence.

4. In the summer, participants may go and collect their exam results but will be asked to make up the time they have missed in order to graduate.

Please note that where a sufficient number of hours have not been completed, it may result in the participant not graduating.

Where this is a result of illness, bereavement or other issues, please consult a member of staff to talk about specific circumstances.
