Apprenticeship and Traineeship Employment Partners

ATEP provide the Apprentice/Trainee with continuity of work for a fixed period and at the same time agree to provide or arrange a program of structured on and off the job training to ensure the respective industry or trade qualification can be successfully completed within the nominal time duration as set out by the Victorian and Commonwealth Training Authorities.

SSGT (Southern Suburb Group Training) trading as ATEP (Apprenticeship and Traineeship Employment Partners), is a ‘not for profit’, community based organisation, proudly in operation since 1987.
An Employment Services Consultant from ATEP provides support to both the Host Employer and the Apprentice/Trainee by monitoring the performance through an ongoing scheduled visitation program at both the place of work and TAFE training environment, providing pastoral care and rotating Apprentices/Trainees to an alternative Host Employer placement when necessary.

At ATEP it’s simple; we employ you and then place you with the most suitable ‘Host Employer’ on a lease basis, for all, or part, of the Contract of Training period.

  • “Honestly I wish my apprenticeship didn’t have to come to an end, thanks for all the work involved. ATEP ensured I was never without a job and never had any hiccups. ATEP should hire sub contractors so I can stay with you guys! Thanks very much again and hopefully I will hire apprentices off you in the future.” Daniel Thompson, Carpenter

  • “We use ATEP for both our apprentices and school based apprentices – the quality of applicants presented to us always ensures an easy and successful selection of apprentice – allowing an easy progression from school based apprentice through to an apprenticeship and on to a fully qualified technician. I fully recommend ATEP.”
