When: Easter holidays (see exact dates in the ‘Events’ section)
Who: This programme is dedicated to young people with additional needs, up to the age of 24.
This programme is designed with higher staff ratios and a dedicated Special Educational Needs Coordinating Officer for young people with additional needs. All young people are welcome and supported to attend all programmes but we found that many parents preferred this environment for their child with additional needs.
Phase 1: Adventure (3 nights)
You’ll live with your team at an Activity Centre. Take part in rock climbing, kayaking, rafting, zip wire, high ropes and much more!
Phase 2: Future (3 days)
You’ll live at home but come into Sheffield city centre each day to take part in skills workshops. These include self-defence, Apprentice-style challenges, project planning and more!
Phase 3: Making a difference (30 hours)
Now you can put your skills into action! In your teams, you’ll design and plan a social action project to benefit your local community. Pitch your idea in the Dragons’ Den to battle it out for some funding!
Phase 4: Graduation
Once you’ve completed the programme, come and celebrate with family and friends! You will also be invited to join the NCS Graduates team which involves planning future events, exclusive work placements and the chance to be on the youth board!
