This document presents the views of a broad spectrum of stakeholders regarding the importance of equipping learners with various global generic competences and how best to integrate these into the curriculum. Nearly 2700 survey responses were gathered from employers and the higher education sector. The responses from the higher education sector were drawn from a representative sample of staff and students from both universities and institutes of technology with responses gathered from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds. The integration of global generic competences into the curriculum is a challenge for many teaching professionals. The National Academy for Integration of Research, Teaching & Learning (NAIRTL) and the Bologna Working Group are working to develop national guidelines in this area. The current survey is one of a number of initiatives feeding into this objective. (Contains 9 figures.)
