model answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am one of the trainees due to attend the ‘customer care’ course in June and I am writing to tell you my interest in being the social events’ organiser for the group.

Could you please send me a bit more information about the size and background of the group and give me a clue about the facilities at the training venue and some stuff there is to see and do in the local area. From the programme I have got, it seems that trainees will be free three evenings in the week and after 1.00 pm on Saturdays at the weekend.

I have some experience of acting in this role as we often run courses here for overseas colleagues and in the past I have been asked to keep myself busy with the social programme: trips, nights-out, group competitions etc. This is a role that I absolutely love.

Please drop me a line if you want any further information or would like me to provide you with the names of referees.

I look forward to hearing from you right away.

Best regards,
Mark Key
Client Advisor
