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.
