Abstract: This study examines the innovation process in Hospitality and Tourism Vocational Education Schools (HTVES) in Spain. HTVES not only have to innovate to update the contents, including the operative and management changes that have occurred in the organisations where the students will work, but they also have to be a laboratory of ideas, initiatives, and projects that produce innovations for the tourism sector. In this regard, understanding what resources intervene in the innovation process and how they are related, strengthening or inhibiting the process, would be quite useful for these schools. This paper analyses the effect of two human resources, human capital and affective commitment, and one organisational resource, culture, on the innovativeness of HTVES. The results suggest that human capital and affective commitment alone do not have a relevant effect on innovativeness without the existence of a suitable organisational culture that looks after employees’ wellbeing and foments collective activities.
