Description of the contract

National Citizen Service (NCS) is a flagship government programme that gives 16 and 17 year-olds the chance to learn new skills and get involved in their communities as part of a challenge rite of passage experience. Launched by the Prime Minister, thousands of young people spent a life-changing summer on the programme in 2011 as part of the first year of pilots . This year up to 30,000 places will be delivered by 29 providers running pilots across the country. Participation in the programme is voluntary and the long-term aim is for NCS to become a rite of passage for all 16 and 17-year-olds. The Prime Minister has confirmed the ambition to offer up to 90,000 places in 2014, making NCS one of the largest youth programmes in the world. In 2013, we want to increase the availability of places to support the long term ambition to give every young person the opportunity to participate in NCS. Subject to the availability of resources and the quality of proposals we expect to secure approximately 50,000 NCS places in 2013 across 19 regions.
