Last summer, Transport for London (TfL) Knowledge staff attended a careers event at a school in south-west London. Two further events are scheduled in February and March 2018, including a TfL careers day for candidates who have left or are in the process of leaving the armed forces.


TfL is committed to raising the profile of the Knowledge and recently met with senior trade representatives and Knowledge schools in order to explore opportunities to further promote it. TfL will continue to meet and work with the trade to exchange ideas on how this can be achieved.


TfL continues to investigate whether the Knowledge can be established as a formal qualification, potentially enabling applicants to apply for study loans.
