Vocational learning resources

The following resources were developed for ARC Linkage project LP0455667, Numeracy for Access to traineeships and apprenticeships, vocational studies, empowerment and low-achieving post Year 10 students, which ran from 2005 to 2008. The project studied better ways to teach mathematics to Vocational Education and Training (VET) students at Bundamba State Secondary College, Metropolitan Institute of TAFE (Moreton Campus), Gold Coast Institute of TAFE (Ridgeway Campus), Tagai College (Thursday Island Campus), and the Open Learning Institute of TAFE.

Additional VET booklets and sets of virtual activities were developed for teachers and students as part of an Australian Studies in Science, Technology and Mathematics (ASISTM) project, Enhancing mathematics for Indigenous Vocational Education and Training students, conducted in 2008 at high schools and TAFEs in rural and remote Queensland communities.
