About the programme

Our 13 month Customer Service Practitioner apprenticeship has been designed by a team of curriculum experts to create a high quality customer focused learning experience.

We’ll help develop your skills to be able to consistently deliver the highest standard of customer service possible. You’ll be trained in the essential skills you need to successfully and competently fulfil your role. We’ll support you to be able to provide a great customer experience and confidently handle general queries.

Is the apprenticeship for you?

This is an entry level programme to help you develop the knowledge, skills and behaviour to be a successful customer service professional. You’ll be in a role handling frontline enquiries using a variety of communication methods to manage and support your customers across a wide range of situations, including face-to-face, telephone, post, email, text and social media. Key to your role will be handling various customer service queries but with a clear escalation route for any issues or more complex queries. Queries you handle could include one-off or routine contacts, dealing with orders, payments, offering advice, guidance and support, meet-and-greet, sales, fixing problems, after care or service recovery.

Apprentices starting the Customer Service Practitioner apprenticeship will typically have inter-personal skills and the experience of working with customers in some capacity.

You must have or achieve Level 1 English and Maths and have taken the Level 2 test prior to taking the end point assessment for the apprenticeship. Our skilled and specialist staff are able to provide further information, guidance and support with English and maths training and helping you to meet these requirements if you need it.
