Description

Pre-traineeship Maths and Literacy for Retail is a write-in workbook that helps to prepare students seeking to gain a Retail Traineeship. It combines practical, real-world scenarios and terminology specifically relevant to the Retail Industry, and provides students with the mathematical skills they need to confidently pursue a career in the Retail Trade. Mirroring the format of current apprenticeship entry assessments, Pre-traineeship Maths and Literacy for Retail 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 Retail Traineeship. Pre-traineeship Maths and Literacy for Retail 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-traineeships. 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. *The cover shown includes updated branding and may be different to the book available for purchase.
