What is Vocational Education & Training - VET by EHL

The VET by EHL licensing model offers organizations and training centers around the world the opportunity to deliver plug and play hospitality programs and administer EHL-approved professional diplomas.

It has been designed as a scalable, affordable and attractive learning solution for students interested in working in the hospitality industry as well as adults who have opted for a career change.

Based on the Swiss Competency Framework -  regarded as one of the best education models in the world - this blended skills training model is characterized by a strong learning outcomes approach and a competence-oriented structure of training content.

Program Structure

Each 6-month certificate level builds skills on top of the previous and counts towards obtaining the Professional Diploma (completion of the three certificate levels is possible from 12-18 months).

The Diploma can be achieved in a reduced timeframe if the student passes a Recognition of Experiential Learning Exam and has prior work experience.

Entry & exit is possible at any level of the certificate subject to admissions criteria.

What is the VET by EHL approach to Learning?

“The most powerful type of learning is not being taught what to do, but learning how to find a solution on your own”.

The VET by EHL standards require that the finest professionals in the industry be employed at each licensed center, bringing training excellence and industry relevance to their classrooms. Each trainer must undergo the EHL-delivered Train the Trainer Program to become a VET by EHL Certified Facilitator: A facilitator does not operate according to the traditional concept of teaching, but rather guides and helps students to learn on their own.
