Customer Service Practitioner
Customer Service Practitioners are hugely influential in the delivery of a good customer experience and their satisfaction with an organisation.
Customer Service Practitioners need to demonstrate excellent customer service skills and behaviours as well as product and/or service knowledge. They will provide service in line with the organisation’s customer service standards and strategy and within appropriate regulatory requirements. Customer interactions may cover a wide range of situations and can include; face-to-face, telephone, post, email, text and social media.
A minimum of four GCSEs at grade 3/2 (D/E) or above is desirable.
Where will I study?
- 12 - 16 months - one day per week
- The one day per week will not always be with Training 2000. It might include shadowing, mentoring, industry visits and attendance at competitions
You may need to complete your English and Maths Functional Skills depending on your GCSE grades or if you cannot provide evidence of your GCSE results.
The Functional Skills programme runs as an addition to the time you are already required to spend doing your 20% off the job and will last a minimum of 2 weeks per subject; if you need to complete both English and Maths that is a minimum of 4 weeks. If a subject then needs re-sitting, this will therefore be more time in the classroom on top of the minimum 2 weeks per subject.
