About NCS NI NCS runs twice a year in summer and autumn and is delivered in 16 areas across the country over the course of the two seasons. Taking place from the end of June in summer and the Halloween break in autumn, NCS begins with an action packed residential experience away from home within a team of 12-15 people, then a discovery phase to learn skills for life and work, and finally meeting up with the team to plan and deliver an action project to make a difference. We wrap up with a graduation and celebration event with all NI NCS graduates from your season.
