A+ National Pre-apprenticeship Maths and Literacy for Hairdressing

Author(s): Andrew Spencer

Trades

The range of A+ National Pre-apprenticeship Maths and Literacy write-in workbook resources help to prepare students seeking to gain a variety of apprenticeships, traineeships and accreditations. They combine practical, real-world scenarios and terminology specifically relevant to their chosen industry, and provide 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 Hairdressing 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 Hairdressing Apprenticeship. Pre-apprenticeship Maths and Literacy for Hairdressing further 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 and pre-accreditations. 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 vocational level.
