SORRIBES COLELL, Enric; RODRIGUEZ-GOMEZ, David  y  BARRERA-COROMINAS, Aleix. Quality and knowledge management in vocational education and training in Europe. Cuad. Investig. Educ. [online]. 2023, vol.14, n.spe, e201.  Epub 01-Dic-2023. ISSN 1510-2432.

This article aims to analyze, from a theoretical approach, the characteristics of knowledge management and quality management in vocational education centers in Europe. A literature review has been carried out, including the revision of reports, doctoral theses, books, book chapters, and articles published in scientific journals, both in English and Spanish, without establishing a time limit. The results show a harmonization of the concept of vocational training at the European level, although there are differences in how each state perceives the educational system's quality. As a result of this discrepancy, different proposals appear, many of them derived from business models, to manage the quality of vocational training centers. Due to the use of business models based mainly on processes, there is a need to include knowledge management models focused on creating, transferring, storing, and applying the knowledge available in vocational training centers. However, there is no agreement to define how these models should be or the relationship they should establish with quality assurance systems. The review carried out allows us to conclude that there is still a long way to go to harmonize vocational education centers' quality assurance systems and their link with the organizational knowledge management system. However, the concept of vocational education is being consolidated across Europe.
