” I just wanted to let you both know that Nicole and the SBAT Horticulture students from EMC have been amazing, due to their hard work we will be ready for our Open Day of the Community Garden at the Centre. Nicole has been a pleasure to work with, her direction and supervision of the students has been incredible, and nothing I requested was ever too much trouble. We have been really impressed by the work ethic, courtesy and respect that the group has shown the Centre staff and clients. We would be more than happy to offer future projects or recommend Nicole and the students for other community projects.  I honestly cannot speak highly enough of Nicole and the students, it has a delight to meet them all. Special thanks to Advance Community College and ATEP for loaning us this talented group of SBAT Students and their awesome teacher.” Sam Rowley, Manager, Langwarrin Community Centre Inc. – 2016

“BDG have been using ATEP since 2000 and in that time have had 12 Carpentry Apprentices. We find ATEP professional and always provide us with excellent apprentices. We love the fact that we don’t have the hassle of reading resumes, conducting interviews. We just call ATEP, tell them what we’re after and they do all the work!!! If you are running your own business and looking for an apprentice I wouldn’t hesitate in calling ATEP to find the right person for you”.                                                       Brett Godden, BDG CONSTRUCTIONS – 2015
