News: Details on House GOP training

New: House Republicans are expanding their internal staff training program aimed at helping Hill aides gain on-the-job training for top roles.

The Republican “Level Up” professional development program is hosting legislative director and chief of staff training sessions in the next month. The legislative director session scheduled for next week has already received 120 applicants.

Per the House Administration Committee, 70% of staffers who took part in the Level Up sessions have been promoted to the position they received training for.

Staff makes Congress tick. Behind-the-scenes training efforts like these are crucial at a time of high member and staff turnover.

Along with the Administration panel, Speaker Mike Johnson’s office and the Republican Conference run the Level Up program.

“By continuing the Level Up program, House Leadership and the House Administration Committee are helping staff develop skills that will prepare them for lifelong careers serving the American people,” Johnson said in a statement.
