Lifelong learning was ignored initially and then given lip-service by federal governments in the Australian context. Seriously inadequate studies for lifelong learning policy formation and development have been undertaken. Because all efforts by the Australian federal government have lacked conviction no serious policies beyond the level of rhetoric have been established. This paper reviews recent literature on the effectiveness of lifelong learning policy in Australia and assesses the likelihood of serious policies being developed and implemented by the Australian federal government to promote effective lifelong learning in Australia.
