Exciting pilot scheme that that pairs the Army Cadet Force with National Citizen Service
National Citizen is the Government's flagship programme for young people in England, that aims to promote a more cohesive, responsible and engaged society by bringing young people from very different backgrounds together to make a difference in their communities. The first pilot took place in 2011 and involved over 8,000 Year 11s.
In 2012 up to 30,000 young people will take part. Recognising the value of cadet training, the NCS team has invited 16 and 17 year old members of the Army Cadet Force to take part in a special pilot scheme that uses cadets’ normal activities towards many NCS objectives.
