I attended the Customer Service Level 1 Course. It has been an eye-opener to understand how much is involved in customer service but I feel like I know what I would need to do, for example the units on Dealing with queries and problems and answering telephone calls.

I have completed the customer service level 1 course.This has been an enjoyable experience and has help me with interacting with others and has given me a clearer picture of what is expected of someone when dealing with customers. I think that if you have the time and don't already have a qualification of a higher level then this is a quick and easy way to get started in earning one.

Attended the Customer Service Level 1 course. While some sections overlapped with a Business Admin Level 1 that I did with another provider, there were several sections that provided me with a deal more externally focused skills such as face to face interaction with a customer and how to deal with problems and requests from a customer. Was originally worried about attending a course with other people, however Catherine's energy proved infectious and I felt at ease providing answers to the course and as such I felt I learned more than I would have if I had kept to myself.

I found the functional skills course enjoyable for the most part. The course was well delivered in a relaxed atmosphere. I found the English fairly easy and enjoyable and learned new things, unlike maths which I really dislike. The course tutor Scott Flinton was really helpful and presented the course well and once again exceeded expectations.

I think the course was good because I can do percentages and decimals now. I have more confidence in English and maths. I think Scott is a good man to work with.

Due to anxiety I was very nervous to start the course but instantly felt at ease with Suzanne she was friendly and helpful and made me feel comfortable from day one. I honestly didn't think I'd laugh as much. I now have a full CV and cover letter and now know what job I am looking for when I didn't have a clue before starting this course THANKYOU

I have gained how to love myself more!!! and learnt new skills for like in an interview. Suzanne is lovely she helped whenever needed and made me feel like there was never a daft question. She made me realise sometimes I'm my own barrier, can't wait for Functional skills next.

I was nervous about starting the course, but Suzanne was friendly and welcoming, but most of all enthusiastic. The course has improved my confidence dramatically and having someone help me update my CV and covering letter was great as I applied for a job and got an interview. As well as thinking about and preparing answers to interview questions and having a mock interview which really helped for my actual interview. Suzanne was knowledgable about the subjects and provide in depth background knowledge to enhance our learning and understanding.

I have enjoyed this course very much I have made new friends and if it wasn't for my tutor I don't think I would have been able to complete this course because I am not very confident or good at making new friends. This course has helped me improve on my maths and English I am very happy with all my work that I have completed .
