Autumn NCS programme a great success!

18 October 2020

Tranmere Rovers in the Community are hosting yet another successful Autumn NCS programme. 

 

Formed in 2011, the National Citizen Service is a voluntary personal and social programme for 15-17-year-old's in England and Northern Ireland.

 

Taking place in the summer and autumn which coincides with the school holidays, with the participants taking part in activities such as team building, outdoor education and a residential visit.

 

This year due to the restrictions the programme has had to adapt to a new style but still with the same aims and goals at the end of the programme. 

 

One of the tasks the young adults participated in this year was an enterprise workshop that saw the groups put together a business or product proposal. The groups were given basic resources to assist with the designing of their business. 

 

The objective was to come up with a strategic business plan, TV advert and to create a pitch to a panel. Groups formed their own Football Clubs to Sustainable fashion brands and the winning group won the new 2020/21 Tranmere Rovers away shirt.

 

The purpose of the task was to gain knowledge in creating their own business and the wide world of business. 

 

Speaking to participants Harry Jackson and Sam Griffiths they said:

 

“We got involved through Tranmere Rovers Sports College. It’s a good thing to have on your CV and enhance your skills.” 

 

“We started off with a session on drug and alcohol awareness and talks on gang violence and gambling addiction. We’ve also done a lot of team building activities and enterprise workshops” 

 

“I think it’s important to take part in NCS as it builds good team skills, confidence, leadership skills and good social skills as well”
