Whether you’re new to retail sales or you’ve been working in the industry for a while, retail training can open doors to better jobs in your current workplace and beyond.

Study retail at Unitec and you’ll learn how to give and respond to feedback, how to work as a team, how to give clear instructions. You’ll also improve your understanding of stock control and legislations and workplace safety.

Unitec's New Zealand Certificate in Retail (Level 3) is a mixture of study and work-based training, so you can put what you learn into practice in your job. Flexibility is key. It’s just six months part-time, with evening classes that you can fit around your job.
