What is an apprenticeship commitment statement?

The apprenticeship commitment statement is a contract signed by the employer, apprentice and training provider before the commencement of the programme. It is signed in the apprentice induction phase alongside the apprenticeship agreement.

The document is a list of expectations from the learner, training provider, and employer, and additional information about the programme. It records the commitment of all parties towards the fulfilment of the apprenticeship programme.

The commitment statement is one of two documents signed before the apprenticeship begins, the other being the apprenticeship agreement.

What does an apprenticeship commitment statement contain?
