The ITSHEC project – Integration of Transversal Skills into Health and Social care, Higher Education and the Curriculum – aims to improve the training of healthcare and social services professionals in transversal skills throughout the undergraduate and postgraduate training journey. ITSHEC is co-funded by the Erasmus+ project of the European Union. 

The key competencies that will be addressed are critical and creative thinking, interpersonal/socio-emotional and citizen-oriented skills and learning to learn. These transversal skills are crucial to lifelong learning and continuing professional development (CPD). Additionally, they are essential to promote active and involved European citizenship in civic and social life and will support improvements in a sustainable working environment.
