A+ National Pre-apprenticeship Maths and Literacy is a write-in workbook that helps to prepare students seeking to gain a variety of apprenticeships and traineeships. It combines practical, real-world scenarios and terminology specifically relevant to their chosen industry, and provides students with the mathematical and literacy skills they need to confidently pursue a career within that trade. Mirroring the format of current apprenticeship entry assessments, Pre-apprenticeship Maths and Literacy for Building and Carpentry includes hundreds of questions to improve students' potential of gaining a successful assessment outcome of 75-80% and above. This workbook will therefore help to increase students' eligibility to obtain a Building / Carpentry Apprenticeship. Pre-apprenticeship Maths and Literacy for Building and Carpentry also supports and consolidates concepts that students studying VET (Vocational Educational Training) may use, as a number of VCE VET programs are also approved pre-apprenticeships. This workbook is also a valuable resource for older students aiming to revisit basic literacy and maths in their preparation to re-enter the workforce at the apprenticeship level.
