So many skills learned; such as mathematical, financial, analytical, evaluative, using a wide variety of sources, research, self-management, managing others, working in teams, interviewing people, visiting businesses and conducting yourself maturely whilst doing so. Maths GCSE, English GCSE, and Science Level 2 re-sits in particular, but Retail goes with most other subjects you may choose.
