This programme is designed for people who are new to a customer service role (or recent recruits) and are working under the supervision of another member or members of staff.
To undertake an intermediate level apprenticeship you must be employed in a customer service job for a minimum of 30 hours per week. If you already have a job, and your employer agrees, you can join an apprenticeship. If you are seeking employment in customer service you can find your own Employer or apply for a job through the apprenticeship vacancies service. All apprentices need to have contract of employment and earn at least the the national minimum wage for apprentices
There are no mandatory entry requirements for this apprenticeship framework. However, you should have a keen interest in providing excellent customer service and working as part of a team. You should have a “can do” attitude and have basic numeracy and literacy skills on which to build your customer service skills.
