Thomas has been attending the WorkReady service for 5 months now and he has achieved some outstanding milestones!
Thomas’ WorkReady consultant knew that with the right amount of effort and tailored training techniques, he will be able to count change on his own. He began with familiarising Thomas with different coins and notes, and moved on to helping him understanding the differences between dollars and cents.
His knowledge of money grew and soon enough Thomas was making payment for his food all on his own.
When working on counting change, Thomas’ WorkReady consultant used real life coins and an online money-counting game and slowly guided him to the correct answer through explaining each step and ensuring that he understood it before they moved on with the equation.
Today, and after just four coin equations, Thomas counted the change correctly for $15.80 from a $20 note.
