Customer Service Specialist Apprenticeship
What will I do on this course?
A customer service specialist is a ‘professional’ for 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 will consist of: Practical observation - this will occur in the last three months and will be an observation of your work in the workplace.
Work-based project and interview - this will occur within the last two months of the apprenticeship and will involve the submission of a project.
Professional discussion - will review the portfolio of evidence that has been developed during the programme.
What could I do after this course?
The next steps could be in management as a team leader apprentice or as an operational/departmental manager.
Five GCSEs at grades 9-4 including English and maths. You will need to be in relevant employment but we can support you to find this.
