Abstract
With the exception of the northern European countries the track record in respect of lifelong learning provision in Europe is, at best, average. The paper examines the policy drivers underpinning lifelong learning in a number of selected European countries. It identifies those drivers or combinations of drivers that have resulted in better than average performance and identifies ways in which Institutions can use policy ‘hooks’ to develop institutional strategies for lifelong learning.
