How it works

ATC Work Smart takes the hard work and risk out of employing an apprentice or trainee. Often referred to as a "Group training organisation (GTO)" we work on your behalf by becoming the legal employer and taking care of HR, recruitment, payroll and training management, so you can just get on with running your business. Our team are different from the rest providing regular visits to your workplace and ongoing support and guidance.

As the Host Employer you will approve a fortnightly time sheet and be responsible for supervising their work-based skills development, providing a safe working environment and releasing them from work duties so they can participate in off the job training if required.
