Signum Hotel Academy, an educational initiative by Signum Hotels & Resorts, has partnered with Tourism & Hospitality Skill Council (THSC) to conduct THSC approved hospitality courses. The affiliation aims to create a pool of talent for entry level positions in hospitality that is facing a crunch of human resources in current times.
The THSC approved courses will impart theoretical knowledge as well as on-the-job training in key operational areas of a hotel including Front Office, Food & Beverages, Food Production and Housekeeping. Signum Cityscapes Mohali has also been approved as the on-the job training center for practical exposure.
Commenting on the affiliation, Mehul Sharma, Founder – Signum Hotels & Resorts said, ‘The pandemic had stalled hospitality hiring and training, and drove away interested students from opting a career in this sector. With business reviving, hiring has also re-started but now there is a shortage of skilled talent. We are happy to partner THSC in our shared vision to create more skilled manpower for the industry.’
On the THSC approved courses being offered at Signum Hotel Academy, Mehul further added, ‘our courses follow a focused approach so the student spends time in learning and training in their core area of interest. This also fast tracks learning and absorption of talent in the workforce.’
Shilpa Dikshiit, Head – Signum Hotel Academy said, ‘THSC partnership will add further credibility to the courses and will enhance program enrolments further. Our courses offer the ideal balance of theoretical knowledge and practical exposure.’
Rajan Bahadur, Chief Executive Officer, Tourism & Hospitality Skill Council (THSC) said, ‘We welcome Signum Hotels to our Training Partner network. THSC is committed to creating a robust and sustainable eco-system for skill development in the industry to fulfil the manpower requirements and bridge the gap. With Signum Hotel Academy we will expand our reach with a common aim to develop skilled talent for hospitality and other sub sectors of the industry.’
