Case Studies on Individual Learning Accounts
The scope of this project is to write a paper for OECD on individual training accounts (ITAs) in two states, as they are currently implemented under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). The paper provides a brief overview of WIOA, describes the role of training within WIOA, describes the structure of ITAs, examines the implementation of ITAs in two states (Michigan and Washington), and summarizes an evaluation that specifically focuses on the effectiveness of different approaches to providing Individual Training Accounts. The paper will also examine to what extent individuals in non-standard forms of work access ITAs.
