Abstract:

Vocational training institutions (VTIs) and many educational institutions are making good progress in developing quality management systems. These are basically framed in practices derived from three internationally-recognized models. These are the ISO Standards model (especially those of the ISO 9000 family), the programmes and institutions accreditation systems that have been developed mainly in the sphere of higher education, and the national and international quality awards, which in some cases include excellence awards for school management. The aim of this book is to help clarify the methodological and functional aspects of these models and the viability of applying them in VTIs in Latin America and the Caribbean. The main areas covered are as follows: (a) an overview of the concept of quality applied to educational institutions; (b) a description of the methodology and functioning of the three models in question; (c) an examination of the way the models complement each other, and the preference factors involved in their adoption by educational institutions; and (d) give an analysis of the utility and applicability of the models in VTIs.
