Phil Everett, Communications Officer for NCS EM1, commented: “Our Spring programme is brand new for 2014 and has been introduced for young people who missed out on last year’s summer and autumn programmes.

“The February programme is a bit shorter than our summer programme, but it still offers all the same benefits including chances to meet new people, try new things and build experience for university applications and CVs – all while giving back to the local area.

“Any teens that want to spend their February half-term doing something fun and different just need to visit our NCSEM1 website to register and start a once-in-a-lifetime journey.”

Lincolnshire and Rutland Education Business Partnership (EBP) has been selected to run this year’s NCS programme for young people in Lincolnshire, Rutland, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire in 2014. The EBP is currently leading a team of delivery partners across the four counties, under the name of NCS EM1
