A BIT ABOUT OUR PROGRAMMES

Welcome to NCS with Derby County Community Trust! We’ve created a fun and rewarding NCS programme for you to take part in this summer. We want to share with you the sort of things you’ll get up to if you take part with us.

For Phase 1 you’ll be based at High Adventure Beaudesert in Staffordshire for 5 days (4 nights) doing lots of outdoor activities to get to know your  team, challenge yourself and have fun. In the evenings, you’ll get time to relax and get to know each other better through games, activities and maybe even a campfire!

When you get back, you’ll have 5 days (4 nights) at Derby University for phase 2 to learn new skills, such as sign language, geo caching and self defence. You’ll also get to meet some really interesting people who work within your community to help others, learning about topics from substance misuse to the emergency services and those who help homeless people.

On phase 3 you’ll be back at Derby University start to plan your social action project throughout this week and agree on how you’re going to complete it, and importantly, who you’d like to help. You’ll also do a community visit – a morning session visiting different community organisations to learn more about work that happens in the city and how young people can get involved.

Our summer programme has been specifically designed so our activities not only equip our young people with tangible take away skills but also provoke thought and place them in their community of Derby.

Phase 1 – High Adventure Beaudesert

Phase 2 – Nunnery Court, Derby University

Phase 3 – Derby University (planning stage), various locations (delivery stage)

 

Any questions?
Drop us a line on ncs@dcct.co.uk with any questions or worries you might have. Either Greg or Daisy (take a look at our pics below!) will come back to you with an answer!

Week 1: Adventure

You will be travelling to High Adventure Beaudesert in Cannock Wood, Rugeley, Staffordshire where you will be taking part in outdoor activities and challenges. You will be camping but we like to think it’s glamping – there are toilets, shower blocks & hot food prepared and served to you by the camp chef. With the nice weather, a campfire and new friends, we think it’ll be a great week.

Week 2: Skills

You will be staying at Nunnery Court which is one of the Halls of Residence at the University of Derby. You’ll get your own bedroom in a flat of 5 and you’ll share a kitchen and bathroom. During this week you’ll get chance to take part in new, fun and challenging workshops.

Some of the sessions you might take part in are:

  • Networking and goal setting
  • Self defence class
  • World of Work session
  • Budgeting and finance workshops
  • Disability sports
  • Geo cache trail
  • Tech challenge
  • Enterprise challenge

In the evenings during week 2, you’ll have a visit from a spoken word artist and create your own spoken word performance – you’ll even learn to sign the words!

Weeks 3-4: Social Action

We can’t give you much detail on this bit – because it’s over to you at this point! You and your team will decide what project you’d like to plan and deliver within your local community. Of course, we’ll support you to make your ideas a reality.
