The approach adopted by TISS-SVE is called the Work Integrated Training program (WITP). This Vocational Educational Program is being implemented for the first time in India with a focus on job-specific skills rather than providing only a broad based education. The aim is to enable the students to learn the skill by engaging in on-the-job training at real shop floor of the industry/company along with class room theoretical training. Through this "Earn while you Learn" approach model, the trainee may also earn a modest stipend during on-the-job duration of the course. Although, this is not mandatory for any institution, TISS-SVE strongly encourages the training partners to adopt this practice.

Eligibility for Admission
The eligibility criteria to enroll for B. Voc. Program in Hospitality Management shall be 10+2 or equivalent.

Employability
Considering the work integrated approach adopted by TISS: SVE the industry will be open to employ the students attached with them for the purpose of training as full time employees. We can assist in placements after completion of the course but no guarantee can be given.
