Studies on future trends regarding skills needs of Europe’s health and social services systems clearly show that all EU countries are facing an increased demand for white jobs  as the sector grows. Health and social care professionals are much more requested of new skills according to predictable future scenarios. Many European health systems are moving towards integrated care, where social and health care needs are packaged as seamlessly as possible for each individual.

For these reasons WIT approach considers crucial to promote a multi-skilling re-qualification  – where professionals gain knowledge from different disciplines – which will improve attitudes to integrated social care. WIT activities will urge greater investment in youth human capital to meet those needs, in addition, they will encourage the development of special and lifelong learning more tailored devised training courses to help the sector’s workers upgrade their skills. 

This will allow policy makers to improve the quality of services provided both to citizens by strengthening private-public collaborations and to training and development institutions, universities and research centres of the targeted region and beyond to support innovation in the organizational models and to minimize information deficits on current and emerging social sector professionals’ skills requirements.
