This industry-recognised course provides the knowledge, skills and experience needed to build a successful career in sales and/or telesales. You will cover all aspects of sales and telesales, exploring topics such as generating sales leads, building relationships with customers, and negotiating and closing sales. You will also develop a firm understanding of sales techniques and processes, online selling and customer service sales. There is a strong emphasis on gaining the transferable skills and confidence needed to progress within employment and/or to higher-level study.
There are no particular entry requirements for this apprenticeship. However, an employer will expect you to have a strong interest in working in sales or telesales and enjoy communicating with customers. You should be able to demonstrate a 'can do' attitude as well as basic numeracy, literacy and communication skills, which you will develop further on this course. It will also help if you have some previous experience of working in a sales role.
You should be aware that some sales and telesales roles involve shift working and/or significant amounts of travel.
