Skills Booster forms part of the NCS FE and schools support programme. Launched in 2020 the programme has already supported over 500 schools and benefited more than 80,000 students across England.
NCS new curriculum resources will focus on personal development, volunteering and social action ensuring that all students from mainstream and non-mainstream educational settings are supported to be ‘world – ready’ and ‘work – ready’, aligning with the Government focus of employability and the levelling up agenda.
Grimsby Town Sports and Education Trust through ‘Skills Booster’ has been commissioned 260 places to work within mainstream education across North East Lincolnshire putting GTSET and NCS in the heart of our local community.
“The support provided to the students is a huge help to the overall goal here at John Whitgift Academy, students have had an extremely tough time of late with all the uncertainty in society and so having that extra help and support through NCS is amazing for us as and our students”
