Request for Proposals: Short-term Consulting Project

Update of Vermont’s Early Childhood Education Apprenticeship Program

The Vermont Association for the Education of Young Children (VTAEYC) is seeking a consultant or consulting group to research and make recommendations to update the design of the Vermont Early Childhood Education Apprenticeship Program. The goal is to create an Apprenticeship program as a preparation pathway that is well-aligned with best practices and Vermont’s early childhood education systems, leverages available systems and resources, attracts a robust number of apprentices and mentors, and plays an important role in building the diverse, dynamic, well-prepared early childhood education workforce needed in Vermont.  

Recommendations should consider:

  • the design of ECE Apprenticeship models in other states
  • the design of other Registered Apprenticeship models in Vermont
  • alignment with the three designations outlined in the Unifying Framework for the Early Childhood Education Profession
  • alignment with Vermont’s current licensing and professional development systems
  • alignment with current and likely future offerings with Vermont higher education programs, especially the Community College of Vermont
  • alignment with and connections to the newly established Pre-Apprenticeship program for high school students within CTE centers
  • alignment with and connections to the emerging child care workforce preparation programs for adults within CTE centers, such as “Step Up to Childcare”
  • connections with the T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® VERMONT scholarship program and the  T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® National Center’s Apprenticeship models
  • availability of state and federal funding sources for Apprenticeship and early childhood education workforce development programs

Deliverables will include:

  • Summary of findings from assessment of current Vermont ECE Apprenticeship Program
  • Summary of research into other states, industries, models, and funding sources
  • Recommended design of Vermont’s ECE Apprenticeship model including implications for implementation, budget, staffing, and alignment/integration with other programs and systems
  • Summary of potential funding sources for Vermont ECE Apprenticeship program, including analysis on any potential new federal funding sources
  • Presentation and discussion of findings and recommendations

The project would ideally commence in February 2022 and would need to be completed by June 30, 2022. The maximum project budget is $30,000.

To apply, the consultant should email a proposal to VTAEYC’s ECE Workforce Development Director Brenda Schramm (  by Monday, February 7 that outlines:

  • Relevant skills and experience of the consultant(s)
  • Proposed project plan including timeline for deliverables
  • Proposed project budget

Please include a resume or CV for the lead consultant(s).
