This record is to help you to cope with problems of decimal currency - not just the coins and the arithmetic but also pricing, cheques, answering customers' queries, and paper work. It will also help you with training your staff for D-Day and for the time when you decide that your business is to go decimal. Produced in consultation with the Distributive Industry Training Board the record is designed for you either to listen to as a whole, or track by track as you need it for your own understanding, and for training staff.

Listen to it at home. Then decide how you are going to arrange to train your staff. You'll find advice on training for your staff on the disc and in ''Ten Steps to D-Day'', published by the Distributive Industry Training Board. You can use tracks from the record to illustrate points in training that you think need emphasising. For the most effective use of the disc it is advisable to get staff together in groups. It will speed their training if they are provided with decimal coins and can act out some of the situations of the disc if trainees have a copy of ''Ten Steps to D-Day'' handy.

You will find some of the publications listed here helpful, particularly if you have a lot of paper work in your business or unconverted scales and tills. Decimal Points on Radio 3 (Study)* will help retailers and others handling money and accounts with last minute planning, preparation and training for D-Day - and this record is based on these programmes.

Further information about these programmes and training programmes for cash handlers will be published nearer D-Day in the RADIO TIMES.
