National Citizen Service 

Here at Portland we deliver a number of National Citizen Service (NCS) programmes throughout the year in partnership with other providers. Both mainstream and fully inclusive, a programme exclusive to Portland. 

Current Portland Further Education learners and Portland Freedom citizens will have the opportunity of accessing an NCS programme if you have not already completed one. 

Your Future

Designed specially for 16 and 17 year olds, the NCS experience will give you a clearer idea of what you want from your future. We’ll help you realise that big, exciting things can come from feeling a little bit overwhelmed.

Team Building Activities

Learn how to work successfully as part of a team by developing your communication and problem solving skills. 

Woodland Adventure Zone

Most NCS programmes at Portland will have access to our triple-award winning Woodland Adventure Zone where you can challenge yourself on our 7m climbing and abseiling tower, take the plunge on our 90m zipline or explore the woodland trails and our sensory play equipment.

Helping the Community

Your NCS programme will culminate in a community action project, putting your skills learnt to the test whilst raising money or volunteering for a local charity.
