  "abstract": "<p>To understand, evaluate and enhance how vocational education and training (VET) contributes to individuals&rsquo; development ultimately requires appraising those contributions across their life courses. How VET assists and supports them through key transitions offers a means to appraise its contributions. Here, the concept of a personal curriculum is introduced and evoked to capture the worklife pathways individuals take and the contributions that VET can and should make. Drawing on a current project elaborating individuals&rsquo; worklife history it is found that three interdependent contributions arise: the person, educational provisions (widely defined) and those from &lsquo;community&rsquo;. The concept of personal curriculum and factors shaping are advanced here.</p>",
