NCS Residential Program

We are one of the leading providers of the residential phase of the NCS programme in the south west region. Each year we welcome around 2000 young people from all over the UK to our centres in Poole and Dartmoor to complete the residential element of the programme. We love that NCS share our ethos by encouraging young people to defy their limits and challenge themselves on a residential programme, which provides a great opportunity to make new friends, achieve personal goals and learn the skills that employers want.
