Students on this September’s Start-Up course will set up a regular clothing exchange event in Frome. The aim is for these events to be a practical, ethical, fun and affordable way for the people of Frome to break dependence on chain retailers selling poor quality clothing that all too often end up in bins.
Ethical fashion experts Liz and Lizzie will be teaching on the course. They have drawn inspiration from existing clothing exchanges, clothing rentals and libraries and will work with a team of Edventure students to pioneer a new model of clothing exchange here in Frome.
Through this challenge, students will get the opportunity to go through the stages of setting up a social business – from market research to business planning, from generating ideas to project planning, branding and launching the idea. All whilst learning to work in a team and step into leadership.
The practical side of this project will be to design and make signs, clothing displays storage and décor for the events.
Completing this challenge and the required documentation will give you the opportunity to gain a level 3 Qualification in Leadership and Management.
