The Australian Retailers Association is proud to partner with Afterpay to deliver a comprehensive, free financial literacy education program designed specifically for Australian retail workers, as part of our ongoing commitment to supporting the fashion and retail industry.

 

The program consists of four different independently designed courses, aiming to address the education gap in financial literacy experienced by retail workers, which include a high proportion of millennials and Gen Z.

 

The courses are distributed through online learning platform, OpenLearning, and are self-led, meaning you can fit them in around a busy work schedule and life commitments.

 

These short courses will help you understand concepts such as superannuation and interest, budgeting/goal setting, the factors that influence financial wellbeing, and how to weigh risk and benefits around your financial decisions.
