Everonn Skill Development Limited (ESDL), a subsidiary of VSAT Network education company Everonn Education Limited, has tied up with Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU), to offer short-term hospitality programmes. ESDL will offer 20 short duration non–credit hospitality courses ranging from one to six months. The courses have been specially crafted by a panel of industry experts to match the industry’s ever changing needs and employment centric as well.

According to a report in, Professor V N Rajasekharan Pillai, Vice Chancellor, IGNOU, who launched the programme said, “The courses offered by ESDL are very significant. Today, only five per cent of the total work force in the country as a whole has some sort of a skill certificate in contrast to over 85 per cent in the developed countries. If we strive to enhance this skill upgradation and certification level to even 10 per cent in the next three years, the national productivity will more than double.”
