Pune: The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and AISSMS College of Hotel Management and Catering Technology will offer a Swiss Vocational Diploma in Hospitality to 100 young Indians. Students who enroll will be able to pursue this 18-month program in two stages, six months of basic and intermediate training followed by 12 months of practical training at Indian Hotels Company Limited (IHCL) of the Taj Group across the country. . .
The program has chosen industry experts and top academics as faculty from AISSMS and IHCL luxury properties. CII has launched this 18-month vocational education and training (VET) program by Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne/EHL Education Group of Switzerland, which will be delivered at AISSMS and IHCL groups across the country. CII has ensured 100% placement for students upon successful completion.
CII said the current gap between supply and demand for skilled labor in India’s hospitality sector is insufficient. Hospitality employers have found the labor provided to be below high industry expectations. There was a need in India for globally recognized vocational training that could create a pool of talented hospitality professionals.
CII’s Executive Director, Sougata Roy Choudhury, said, “We intend to meet the Indian hospitality industry‘s need for qualified and globally referenced talent. Before students are sent to industry, AISSMS will play a very important role in establishing a solid host base. India has a large population of young people proficient in English.
