NCS ambassador Barry Bannan presented students from Tapton School with a certificate to celebrate their National Citizen Service (NCS) graduation at Hillsborough.

NCS is a government funded youth programme for 15 to 17-year-olds. The project is designed to develop young people both personally and professionally by providing students with valuable skills and qualifications.

As well as developing their CVs the programme provides students with the opportunity to help their local community.

Tapton students also embarked on a residential at Kingswood Dearne Valley Activity Centre where they experienced climbing, high ropes, high all aboard, abseiling, zip wires and many more exciting activities.



Lucy Shuttleworth, NCS Manager, said: “It’s been great to have a Tapton-only NCS programme and we are looking to expand for next year within the school.

“It’s great to be able to equip these young people with additional skills they can use after school to make them stand out from the crowd in interviews and university applications.

“We again have 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.”

The Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme would like to congratulate everyone who took part in the project.

If you are interested in NCS, the Community Programme runs several waves throughout the summer. Stand out from the crowd and become a NCS graduate.
