Key Stages 2/3
Kitbox Ventures is an exciting and interactive one day workshop based on the school’s online shop. Through fun, hands on activities children explore and learn about e-commerce, supply and demand, product design, marketing and profit and loss. Pre and post workshop lessons are delivered by the classroom teacher with full guidance, lesson plans and resources provided. All Kitbox Ventures workshops are delivered by an experienced Kitbox facilitator or trained business volunteers.
Kitbox Ventures is delivered at no cost to schools, as all management support and activities are funded out of the profits from uniform sales. To get started all your school needs to do is sign an agreement appointing Kitbox as the school’s official and exclusive uniform supplier:
Kitbox will create a personalised online store your school selling school uniform, PE kit and other school essentials.
Kitbox will match your current uniform or we can work with you to add to or update product range.
The service includes free home delivery (minimum order value applies), free postage for returns and competitive prices so you can be sure your parents get good value for money.
Kitbox will provide a full size set for your school so parents can have children try on before ordering online.
We will support you to organise a sales event at the school which could be used to assist with school admission process.
"Kitbox helped our children understand how real businesses operate whilst developing their core skills; preparing them for their future working lives. The world of work is changing rapidly and we need to take responsibility in preparing our children for this; developing their creativity, problem solving and confidence to succeed. The children thoroughly enjoyed participating in the programme; a really fun and interactive way of learning quite complex subjects."
Katarina Forrest, Deputy Head Teacher, Starks Field Primary School
"I believe good teaching is when the children learn something that is relevant to their life and Kitbox absolutely does this! After participating in the programme our children were constantly making links both in the classroom and in the playground about what they had learnt from Kitbox and with their daily life ... excellent! A very valuable experience, one which I believe they'll remember for a long time!”
Katie O’Sullivan, Key Stage 2 Leader
“We are proud to be the first primary school in the UK to introduce the full Kitbox initiative. It is a unique way for our children to learn about business and gain the vital skills, experience and attitudes they will need to succeed in their futures. It is also really exciting for our school to be able to generate additional income and ease the funding challenges that are facing every school today.”
