The Customer Service Practitioner Level 2 Apprenticeship Standard provides learners with an opportunity to gain excellent customer service skills within an automotive setting. Apprentices can gain experience in a wide range of customer interactions which will influence the customer experience and their satisfaction with the organisation.
Designed with different learning styles in mind, IMI’s solution ensures apprentices are fully engaged and prepared for their End-Point Assessment (EPA). This new standard is suited to those looking to work in customer service roles across the automotive industry.
The role of a Customer Service Practitioner is to deliver a high quality service to the customers of their organisation. This may be digitally or face-to-face and will generally include dealing with orders, offering advice, guidance and support, fixing problems and aftercare. Customer Service Practitioners are often the first point of contact for the customer and will work in a variety of sectors and organisations.
