two.1.4) Short description

This notice is published to advertise a forthcoming market engagement exercise. This exercise relates to the recommission of the National Citizen Service Trust (NCS Trust) Programme contract.

NCS Trust is implementing a new service delivery model across England to replace the current supplier contracts across residential, community and digital experiences. The model will also include affiliated services in associational and education settings that will, in part, service as access routes to these experiences.

Through engaging in these experiences, young people will develop essential skills required for work and life. Experiences will be designed to increase confidence, resilience and wellbeing. They will ensure young people are engaged citizens who feel motivated to make a difference, and feel a sense of belonging, whatever their background.

All NCS Trust experiences will enable social mixing of young people from different backgrounds. Experiences will also be shaped around three further objectives: support life skills and independent living; build employability and work readiness; and, provide opportunities for volunteering and social action.

The overview of the experiences and services in the NCS Trust model is as follows:

● Residential experiences - 4 night, 5 day residential experiences designed around one or more of the NCS Trust offer objectives, mainly in school holidays;

● Community experiences - Activities designed around all of the NCS Trust offer objectives, delivered in a community, non-residential setting throughout the year as either a set programme across a number of weeks or a more fluid drop-in arrangement (NB: NCS Trust intends to explore and choose between these options through market engagement and testing);

● Digital experiences - Self-guided learning and facilitated on-line sessions that focus primarily on the development of communication, leadership, problem-solving and emotional regulation skills plus practical skills relating to the NCS Trust offer objectives such as project planning, taking place year-round; and,

● Affiliated services - Initiatives and resources for those in educational, group or specialist settings, which work towards NCS Trust outcomes and encourage future participation in the above services

NCS Trust will conduct market engagement exercises with a series of webinars between 26 January 2022 and 03 February 2022, and a questionnaire will be required to be completed between 24 January 2022 and 03 February 2022. The purpose of the questionnaire will be for NCS Trust to obtain insight from the market regarding NCS Trust delivery model options, commercial models and contracting options etc.

NCS Trust reserves the right to undertake 1-2-1 engagements with selected suppliers if required.

All interested suppliers must Express an Interest (EOI) to this PIN no later than the 24 January 2022 (12pm) via https://forms.gle/39NpWhiC3WzE6HyBA to participate in the NCS Trust market engagement. Any supplier which does not complete the EOI by the above stated date will exclude themselves from market engagement process for this project.

All new suppliers will be required to register via Bravosolutions (supplier registration).
