This paper reports on research into the mechanisms that attract individual investment in vocational education and training (VET) and other post compulsory education in Australia and overseas. It looks at some of the issues associated with encouraging investment by individuals and describes the key features and outcomes of individual learning account (ILA) models introduced in the UK, The Netherlands, Sweden and the USA. The paper offers reflections on lessons learned from these ILA models that can be applied to other mechanisms that encourage individuals to invest in lifelong learning.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
