The role of a customer service practitioner is to deliver high quality products and services to the customers of their organisation.
Your core responsibility will be to provide a high quality service to customers which will be delivered from the workplace, digitally, or going out into the customer’s own locality. These may be one-off or routine contacts and include dealing with orders, payments, offering advice, guidance and support, meet-and-greet, sales, fixing problems, aftercare, service recovery or gaining insight through measuring customer satisfaction. You may be the first point of contact and work in any sector or organisation type. Your actions will influence the customer experience and their satisfaction with your organisation.
You will demonstrate excellent customer service skills and behaviours, as well as product and/or service knowledge when delivering to your customers. You provide service in line with the organisation’s customer service standards and strategy and within appropriate regulatory requirements. Your customer interactions may cover a wide range of situations and can include face-to-face, telephone, post, email, text and social media.

Teaching and assessment
You will need to complete tasks to build a portfolio demonstrating your knowledge, skills and behaviours. Teaching takes place one day per month combined with online activities through our learning platform. The portfolio contributes to an end-point assessment which comprises several elements (including a professional discussion and interview). Achievement at the end-point assessment confirms whether the qualification is complete and you have met the standard at pass, merit or distinction.
Ideally, applicants should have 1-2 years’ experience of working in a customer service-based role or have achieved a minimum of Level 1 Functional Skills in English and Maths. You must be employed and your employer willing to support you with 20% off-the-job time to complete the requirements of the course.
If you want to become an apprentice and do not have a job, UCB will work with you to find a suitable paid placement. If you are in work and want to take an apprenticeship qualification, we can advise you on what you need to do.
