Sustainable School Uniforms ACCELERATOR PROGRAM

SUPERPOWER YOUR UNIFORMS

Our Sustainable School Uniforms Accelerator is a first and one of a kind program that has been designed to use school uniforms to help you align with the values of today’s parents and students, which include sustainability and societal impact.

Over 12 weeks we will guide you through a process that will enable you to get the most out of your transition to our uniforms, engage your school community and build a foundation to tackle other areas of sustainability within your school. If you are committed to sustainability and ready to use this momentum to attract and retain students, then apply below.

Application Process

Enrolment is extremely limited, and we expect to accept just 10% of schools that apply. We will begin to review applications on 1st September 2022, although early bird applications can be made. The deadline to apply is 30th November 2022. Our team then reviews all applications carefully, based on the date that they were received. If there is a potential fit, we will reach out to schedule an in-person interview. Interviews will take place from November 2022, during which time you will have the opportunity to review samples.

We will get back to you by 12th December 2022 if you have been selected to participate in the program. Once you have decided to come onboard, we will send full details of the program your way.

Note: Rolling applications, priority will be given to applications submitted by 30th November 2022.

Over 12 weeks we will take you through our MICE Framework of Materials & Manufacturing, Impact & Offsetting, Circularity, and Eco-Literacy, as well as a bonus Sustainable Marketing module. By the end of the process you will not only have sustainable uniforms, and have designed a powerful pitch to engage your school community in this initiative, but you will also have the foundations to tackle sustainability in other areas of your school.
