The benefits of NCS Graduate Events

By attending these NCS Graduate events not only do you receive certificates, get to socialise with your friends and gain volunteer experience but you can also receive employment points. We have many NCS Graduates who come and work with us as Assistant Leaders when they turn 18 and it is the second summer after they graduate. By attending the graduate events you will receive points which we will use alongside your application form to decide if you qualify for an interview. This is a great way of putting yourself ahead if you would like to work on NCS with us in the future. However, please be aware that attending the graduate events does not guarantee you a job. 

Some NCS Graduates will be selected to apply for the Regional Youth Board and they will then sit on the board at each session. However, some board meetings will be open to all graduates. The dates for the Regional Youth board meetings are: 

Saturday 18th November: Regional Youth Board meeting 1 in Oxford

Tuesday 13th February: Regional Youth Board meeting 2 in Milton Keynes

Saturday 5th May: Regional Youth Board meeting 3 in Aylesbury

Tuesday 31st July: Regional Youth Board meeting 4 in Reading

Updates on the Regional Youth board will be sent out to everyone signed up to the Graduate mailing list. 

We will also need graduates at our NCS 2017 recruiting events. If you are interested in speaking at a school assembly, helping at a recruiting event or being on the young people panel at staff interviews then please contact Jasmine Smith.
