The National Citizen Service (NCS) scheme gives all 16 and 17 year olds the chance to take part in activities that build skills for work and life whilst they meet new challenges and new friends. It brings together young people from different backgrounds and helps them develop confidence, self-awareness and responsibility, and encourages personal and social development by working on skills such as leadership, teamwork and communication; important attributes that colleges, universities and employer’s value. Portsmouth VCC fully endorses the NSC as our aim aligns very closely with the scheme’s objectives. Consequently, HMS Excellent RNVCC is delighted to be able to offer involvement in the scheme. Please visit our website for further information. Eligible cadets will also receive a presentation on Fri 10 Feb 2017. Please visit our website for more information.
