TAEF President meets lawmakers on Capitol Hill to discuss new Apprenticeship Bill

As part of the (February) 2018 Skills Summit in Washington D.C., TAEF founder and President, Tom Bewick, led a U.K. delegation to Capitol Hill to meet with policymakers interested in expanding apprenticeships.

Meeting with the office of House Representative Susan Davis (D) from California, a discussion took place about how to improve bi-partisan efforts that can support the scaling up of more high-quality apprenticeships. A further roundtable is planned in March 2018, with the aim of drafting a new bi-partisan Apprenticeship Bill. Congressional lawmakers are very interested in the U.K. model of expansion and how the role of workforce intermediaries, like Apprenticeship Service Providers, can help in the expansion effort.
