Receptionists are the front line of the organisation and make or break the first impressions of your visitors whether by face to face or telephone.

This video based module course will give you all the skills required for answering the telephone professionally while managing a busy front desk and dealing with visitors.

Face to face customer service and reception skills go hand in hand as they are the director of first impressions.

On reception, just the first few minutes of interaction with a customer or visitor, the tone is set for the company. As a matter of fact, the modern receptionist serves as a crucial central coordination point for the organisation and their contacts with clients, suppliers and customers.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
