The School Uniform Initiative
Grown Out Of It is a website dedicated in helping parents buy and sell unwanted school uniform, school uniform that their children have Grown Out Of.
We have recently set up an initiative for schools whereby parents and guardians will have the opportunity to donate any school uniform their children have grown out of to be made available to other families.
This initiative will see the school children running the scheme as part of a community challenge volunteering project and in some cases, this can go towards a skill-based certificate.
We have over 25,000 schools listed on our website, all of which have their very own exclusive shop / webpage.
In addition to the school uniform, you will also have the opportunity to sell advertising on the page of your school which will also help in raising extra income for you.
The students using ‘Grown Out Of It’ as a business will gain the following skills:
- Digital Literacy
- Critical Thinking and Problem Solving Planning and
- Organisation Creativity and Innovation Personal Effectiveness
Here are just a few of the tasks that will need to be carried out by the students to learn the skills necessary above:
- Learn to create and design banners and adverts for your students to sell the uniform
- Students can set their own pricing structure as they see ﬁt
- Learn about packaging sold items if necessary
- Sending the product to the customer or arranging collection
- Dealing with online payments
- Dealing with any queries from their customer
- Sell advertising to local businesses
