The Voice winner Jermain Jackman visits North Hykeham school

A winner of BBC One’s Saturday night programme The Voice visited a Lincolnshire school to give a talk to 15 and 16-year-old students.

2014 winner Jermain Jackman spoke to pupils at North Kesteven School about his experiences as a graduate of the government-supported National Citizen Service (NCS) programme.

Jermain performed two songs to students and spent time talking with the Year 11 pupils about his time on the NCS programme in 2012 and how it had helped him become a more confident and well-rounded person.

The NCS is a voluntary programme for 15-17 year-olds in England and Wales, with participants taking part in a community backed project.

Gemma Betts, Careers and Work Related Co-ordinator at North Kesteven School, said: “Our students found the talks by the NCS team and performances from Jermain very inspiring.

“A high number of students were very interested in further developing their skills and giving something back to the community via the NCS programme.”
