Workforce Development: Advancing Apprenticeships for Small Business


The Committee on Small Business Subcommittee on Contracting and Workforce will meet for a hearing titled, “Workforce Development: Advancing Apprenticeships for Small Business.”  The hearing is scheduled to begin at 2:00 P.M. on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 in Room 2360 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

Subcommittee Members will continue the Committee’s exploration of strategies to mitigate small business workforce challenges caused by the skills gap.  On February 26, 2018 the Committee held a field hearing, “Workforce Development: Closing the Skills Gap,” which focused on career and technical education programs.  This hearing will examine apprenticeship initiatives, specifically the Department of Labor Registered Apprenticeship Program, which combines on-the-job learning and related technical instruction.
