Make sure you satisfy your customers.
We’ve all had that frustrating phonecall with an unhelpful bored-sounding service centre or visited a shop to find they know nothing about their own products. You’ve probably also made a grumble to a friend, or if you’re really peeved gone on TripAdvisor or Google to write a scathing review. This is the risk posed by poor customer service.
This is where one of the new apprenticeships might have everything you need to protect your reputation. Using your levy pot you can invest in the Customer Service Level 2 Apprenticeship, which teaches your staff everything they need to know about dealing with customers. Even the difficult ones.

Who is eligible for the Customer Service Apprenticeship Level 2?
Apprenticeships span from Level 2 to Level 7. As a rough guide, level 2 equates to 5 good GCSE passes, with 6 & 7 comparable to a degree. The level 3 Team Leader Apprenticeship is an 'Advanced Apprenticeship', equivalent to 2 A-level passes.
This apprenticeship is suitable for anyone in a service role, in any industry. Typical roles might include Customer Support Representative, Support Specialist, Member Services Representative and Support Technician. The course is tailored to suit employer business requirements, ensuring learners achieve their maximum potential and deliver the knowledge and skills their business needs. With 80% of learning on the job, this is a qualification designed to benefit all businesses, protecting brand reputation and ensuring client satisfaction.
How does the funding work?
You'll probably be aware that your levy payment is held in your HMRC digital account, from which monthly payments are made directly to your training partner as your staff receive their apprenticeship training. If you don't use your levy pot within 24 months, the government reserves the right to transfer your fund to other employers, so making the most of your investment and acting quickly is key. You can use your levy pot to fund the entire apprenticeship. Check out our guide to the apprenticeship levy. If you're NOT a levy payer then we hope to be able to offer apprenticeships for you from Q1 of 2018.
