All you need to know about course dates and times
Customer Service Specialist, Apprenticeship
What will I do on this course?
A customer service specialist provides direct customer support within all sectors and organisation types. You are an advocate of customer service who acts as a referral point for dealing with more complex or technical customer requests, complaints, and queries.
You are often an escalation point for complicated or ongoing customer problems. As an expert in your organisation’s products and/or services, you share knowledge with your wider team and colleagues. You gather and analyse data and customer information that influences change and improvements in service.
How will I be assessed?
The end-point assessment consists of three parts. The practical observation takes place in the last three months and will be an observation of your work in the workplace.
The work-based project and interview occurs in the last two months of the apprenticeship and will involve the submission of a project.
The professional discussion reviews the portfolio of evidence that has been developed during the programme.
What could I do after this course?
You could progress to a management qualification, such as a team leader apprentice or an operational or departmental manager.
Five GCSEs at grades 9-4 including English and maths. You will need to be in relevant employment but we can help you find this.
