The EUGLOH Alliance Competences Framework consists of 10 key competences that serve the purpose of cataloguing EUGLOH’s training offer in terms of activities oriented to the development of transversal skills, relevant across all study levels and subject areas. The 10 competences are divided into two groups, according to the idea that each hemisphere of our brain manages different functions – the “Left Brain vs. Right Brain” metaphor.

Right Side The right side of the framework is associated with intuition, imagination, creativity and emotional intelligence. Hence, the competences included in this group are the following: Creativity & Problem Solving; Communication & Collaboration; Leadership & Social Impact; Emotional Awareness & Resilience and Intercultural Skills.
