GIVING A BOOST TO THE TOURISM SECTOR:
With a view to filling the gap of skilled manpower in rapidly growing tourism sector in Gujarat, EDII joined hands with Tourism Corporation of Gujarat Ltd (TCGL) to spread 'Khushbu Gujarat Ki' across the nation. An MOU was signed between TCGL and EDII on 19th February 2016 under the aegis of Vibrant Gujarat to conduct Skill Development Programmes for stakeholders associated with the tourism sector in Gujarat. The institute aims to inculcate culture of entrepreneurship in the booming tourism sector. 500 trainees were trained in carefully selected sectors which impact the tourism industry.
500 trainees sharpen their entrepreneurial skills at EDII which includes 274 women.
Following areas were covered:
Tour Operators/Travel Agents (100 trainees)
Art & Craft (161 trainees)
Eating Outlet Service (119 trainees)
Defensive Driving & Grooming of Taxi/Auto Drivers (120 trainees)
Tangible benefits are visible in terms of professionalism induced in the tourism and related sectors. In future too, the Institute would get an opportunity to introduce competence in cluster and tourism sectors development in Gujarat.
