Outline

A Customer Service Practitioner represents their organisation in a professional manner, and delivers a high quality service digitally, or using the customer’s own locality. Their role may include meet-and-greet, sales, service recovery, dealing with orders, payments, and giving advice. You may be the first point of call for your organisation. Your actions will influence the customer experience, so excellent customer service skills and behaviours are required. You may interact by telephone, email, text and social media.

Assessment

It typically takes 12 months to complete the apprenticeship, but this will vary depending on your experience and working pattern.

You will be allocated a Trainer Assessor who will support you throughout the apprenticeship with regular monthly sessions. This is flexible to your requirements, however, contact is available and encouraged outside of this time so each apprentice receives the help they need. Trainer Assessors make good use of digital platforms to support this.

Workshops are available for groups, and can be managed with employers at enrolment.

Practical Period

  • New knowledge, skills and behaviours are delivered and assessed by your Trainer Assessor, with the support of your employer
  • 20% off the job training is a mandatory requirement of all apprenticeship standards
  • You will complete a Level 1 in maths and English, if applicable

Gateway

The gateway is the opportunity for the provider and employer to agree whether the apprentice is ready and ready to take their End Point Assessment (EPA).

End Point Assessment

The end point assessment is synoptic, and takes place at the end of the apprentice’s learning and development. The requirement is that the end point assessment is completed within three months from the start of the end point assessment period. The end point assessment is made up of the following components:

  • A practical observation in the workplace
  • The apprentice showcase
  • A professional discussion

Entry Requirements

All apprentices must achieve a Level 1 in maths and English before the end point assessment, or provide a certificate of prior achievement which is equivalent.
