star this property answer text <p>The French, German and US schemes referred to in the Cost Benchmark Report do not deliver the NCS programme. These schemes are used to compare the cost of the NCS programme with other international youth programmes. The report finds that overall programme costs of NCS are significantly lower than those of these international comparators, although meaningful comparison is difficult as NCS is delivered in an intensive, 3-4 week programme, and these international schemes are delivered over an extended period, varying between 3-18 months and with varying levels of time commitment. These schemes also include direct and indirect payments to participants.</p><p> </p><p>DCMS and the NCS Trust are committed to further improving the value for money and reducing the unit cost of the NCS programme. A key opportunity to achieve this is the recommissioning of the NCS provider contracts from 2019 onwards.</p> more like this
