One of AMP’s basic goals is to “Serve as the liaison between manufacturing needs and
education articulation”. In support of this goal, we have established the AMP
Employment Bank as another program that will ultimately aid the process of adding
technically competent employees to the workforce. The following is a synopsis of the
AMP Employment Bank
Program Synopsis: High school and JTED graduates meeting the minimum
requirements below will be entered into a data bank maintained by the SVS Group.
SVS Group will vet candidates and provide information to potential employers.
Employers will be advised, via AMP ongoing liaison efforts, of this potential source of
qualified employee candidates. Once hired, employers will pay SVA Group a one time,
extremely discounted rate if the employer is a member of the AMP community*.

the graduate to the potential employer for interviews. AMP markets the program to
the JTEDs, parents, students, employers and will monitor the program’s progress.
