Assured job on completion of the programme; on-the-job training with stipend to be provided during the programme
New Delhi/Mumbai: TimesPro and The Job Plus have collaborated to launch the Certificate Programme in Hotel and Hospitality Management with assured placements for aspirants looking to embark on their career journey with the hospitality industry. The certificate programme will equip learners with critical industry skills to master the profession and gain experience by working with leading industry brands.
The need to launch this programme has emanated from the predicted huge demand for a skilled workforce to be generated by FY 2029.
As per a recent article “Recast of Skilling Framework Planned” published by Economic Times, India is looking to revamp its skilling framework to make on-the-job training mandatory across all short-term courses while proposing to set up a global board of accreditation to bring industry focus in the ecosystem. This initiative has reinstated our effort towards bringing in a qualitative shift in the current workforce.
To meet the demand for a skilled and assessed workforce, The Job Plus and TimesPro have teamed up to create India’s first hospitality Ed-Tech platform that is aimed to connect with millions of youths across Tier II and III cities in the country and help build a future-ready workforce which can be employed across the service-hospitality sector.
This five-month hybrid Certificate Programme in Hotel and Hospitality Management will be conducted via TimesPro’s state-of-the-art Interactive Learning (IL) platform and delivered in Direct-to-Device (D2D) mode.
It is focussed to strengthen the fundamentals and concepts of learners while providing them with hands-on experience across various hospitality departments like accommodation, food and beverage service, banqueting and many more along with an opportunity to work in hotels & restaurants, theme parks, tourism agencies, etc. The programme will include two months of hybrid learning and three months of on-the-job training with a stipend. The curriculum will include topics such as Fundamentals of Hotel and Catering Industry, Standard Operating Procedures, Food and Beverage Production and Services, Front Office Operations and Administration, Customer Sales and Service, Personal and Professional Proficiency (PPP), and TimesPro English speaking training (TEST), among others.
Post completion of the five-month course, the learners will get placed with leading domestic and international hospitality employers across various job roles as Front Desk Associate, Steward, F&B service executive (Captain), Bar Tender, House Keeping Executive, etc.
Speaking at the announcement, Anish Srikrishna, CEO, TimesPro, said, “The hospitality industry will witness phenomenal growth as India emerges as a preferred tourist destination and attract millions of international and domestic visitors. The Certificate in Hospitality and Hotel Management, launched by TimesPro in collaboration with The Job Plus and The People Network, will provide learners with skills that resonate with the changing industry requirements and employment opportunities across leading organisations.”
