CII and ITC Hotels join hands with EHL group to offer Swiss Professional Diploma in Hospitality

Chennai, Dec 07 (UNI) In a significant initiative for skill development in Indian hospitality undertaken by industry body CII, an 18-month Vocational Education and Training (VET) Professional Diploma program by the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne (EHL) Education Group of Switzerland will be delivered at four ITC hotels across the country.

In a press release here today, Sougata Roy Choudhury, Executive Director, CII said a total of 200 students who have passed 12th standard in school will be enrolled in the firest batch across four luxury properties including ITC Maurya (New Delhi), ITC Sonar and ITC Royal Bengal (Kolkata), ITC Maratha (Mumbai) and ITC Grand Chola (Chennai). Fifty students will be taught at each hotel and the CII has assured cent percent placement to students upon successful completion of the ‘VET by EHL’ Professional Diploma program that is recognized by all major hospitality chains Worldwide.

At CII, we intend to address the need of the Indian hospitality industry for skilled, globally benchmarked talent. Hence this partnership with the 127-year-old EHL group, which is ranked as the number one hospitality and leisure management school in the world, he said.

Mr.Choudhury said the current demand-supply gap of trained workforce in the Indian hospitality sector is at a shortfall of about 80 percent. Hospitality employers find the workforce being supplied below the industry’s high expectations. There is a definite need in India for globally recognized vocational training that can create a pool of talented hospitality professionals. The VET by EHL program will bridge the skills gap and strengthen India’s position as the global hospitality workforce supplier of choice.

The course will train the youth to World-class standards for careers in hospitality, including hotels, airlines, cruise-lines, catering and travel industry, not only in India but around the World. This is a unique training model in partnership with the industry, delivered at industry premises and facilitated by industry experts, to prepare the youth for quality employment within the industry. Nothing like this exists in India currently, he added.
