Learning Agreement and Commitment Statement

Each organisation is required to sign our Learning Agreement prior to the commencement of the apprenticeship. The Apprentice is also required to sign a Commitment Statement, forming a three way agreement between themselves, their employer and Cranfield University as the apprenticeship provider. Once your apprentice has applied for their programme, our Contracts Team will be in touch directly to assist with this process. 

If you have questions around the Learning Agreement or Commitment Statement, please contact our Apprenticeships Office
