Traditional education is no longer the one currently hoped for, but quality concepts have emerged, linked first to industry, then covered all areas of life, especially the field of education. Not only is the amount of knowledge only the criterion by which the graduate is measured, but also the means of teaching, learning and self-learning, and the ability to self-development, competition, cooperation and continuous improvement, and this is what overall quality processes aspire to.
