ATEC - Group Training Scheme

What are the benefits for your business in ATEC's apprentice hire service
(ATEC Group Training)? 

Employing an apprentice through ATEC Group Training is extremely cost effective; you only pay for the time the apprentice is in the workplace, reducing the administration and headaches of employing your own staff.


Facts at a glance:

  • There are reduced administration costs. ATEC Group Training manages all the administration and paperwork including awards, payroll and Workcover allowing you to just focus on your business.
  • Flexibility. Hire from 2 weeks to the term of the apprenticeship. You retain the right to return if economic circumstances prevent ongoing employment, giving you total peace of mind.
  • An extensive selection, recruitment and placement service to find you the right apprentice. The best fit for your business is our priority and we also ensure a minimum standard of training where needed before an apprentice starts with you (e.g. Certificate II level).
  • Comprehensive support and regular mentoring. In line with your needs we manage the apprentice's skills development and training through maintaining regular scheduled contact, always with your business and the apprentice's needs as a priority.
  • Trade qualified staff with flexible training options. Our Group Training staff are trade qualified and can arrange training at your site when needed.
  • Financial simplicity. You only pay for hours worked, receiving an invoice fortnightly.
  • Quality endorsed service. ATEC's apprentice hire service (Group Training) is accredited against the National Standards for Group Training Organisations.
