We have seen our BTEC students celebrate their graduation from the NCS programme, delivered by Lincoln City Foundation. Our BTEC students enjoyed a number of fun-filled team activities while away on a residential retreat at Norfolk Lakes, before returning to Sincil Bank to help local charities raise money through various different community-based events, like sponsored bike rides, charity football matches and even donating their hair to help with production of wigs for cancer patients going through chemotherapy. The students raised in a region of £1640 and increased the awareness for the following charities Angelman UK, Little Princess Foundation, Mind Charity, Meningitis Now and Great Ormond Street Hospital.
NCS is a flagship government initiative that provides young people aged 16-17 the chance to take on new challenges, experience exciting activities, make long-lasting friendships and develop vital skills that will support them later in life. It was launched to tackle three core issues of importance to society: social cohesion, social mobility and social engagement.
Raj Randhawa, Education Manager, said: “It’s great to be able to equip our students with additional skills they can use after our BTEC programme to make them stand out from the crowd in interviews and university applications. We have had some great social action projects and I am amazed to see the benefits that community groups and charities are seeing from these remarkable young people.”
