Abstract

<p>The scope of this paper is to review some of the literature which addresses the distinct concept of ‘Transferable skills’ (TS) and specifically their <em>‘integration’</em> into Degree programmes in Higher Education (HE). The review will address the three influences on such an integration approach namely: influence at an <em>institutional</em> level, the influence of <em>academics</em> and finally the <em>student</em> influences. In addressing these three factors, each one will be approached from a dyadic perspective dealing principally with how they can inhibit or facilitate<strong> </strong>integration<strong>. </strong>The practical perspective of how this occurs in an Irish Higher Education Institution (HEI) will also be examined. The institution in question is Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT).</p>
