Saltash.net was delighted to invite representatives of the National Citizen Services programme from Cornwall College in to school recently to present an assembly to our Year 11 students.

The National Citizen Service programme is a unique, government subsidised opportunity that is for our students in Years 11 and 13.

Every summer students have the opportunity to take part in a 4 week scheme based at Cornwall College, taking part in life skill building activities and being presented with the opportunity to build their employability skills. Tasks include both personal challenges and work based activities.

We were thrilled to see so many interested students recognising that this was a unique opportunity that they could not miss out on.

We were also delighted to receive an award recognising our school as a NCS Champion school for 2015/2016 due to the volume of students that took part in the programme.

Mrs Gue, Head of Personal Development, said that “schemes like this are vital for personal development and we are thrilled that so many students have shown an interest, and for those who have already benefited greatly from the programme.”
