M394 – Motion on an Energy and Household Management Qualification 2016, TSR Green Party
This House believes that education in how to manage a home, particularly in the areas of energy costs and financial planning, is limited in the UK. This House believes that knowledge is this area is a skill for life, regardless of the household that any person lives in and the relationships within that household.

This House believes therefore that a nationally recognised qualification in energy and household management, at least to NVQ level 2 standard (or equivalent), should be introduced. The study/learning should include an understanding of energy costs, of the whole life costs of some key household purchases, the varieties of long and short-term borrowing and saving and what interest rates mean, and of the basic rights and responsibilities that come with renting property.

This is a stupid idea, Britain does not need another Mickey Mouse qualification to award to young people as an easy option, nor does Britain need more compulsory qualification that reduces teaching time available for more important subjects. Previous generations have coped fine with this qualification not existing, there is not a need to introduce a new qualification to fix a problem that does not exist.

Nay. Students shouldn't be wasting time on this, nor should it be equivalent to other subjects at the same level.

There shouldn't be a Qualifacation but there should be more money and budgeting lessons.

Not a qualification. Lessons? Maybe.

Nay, though something similar to this might be implemented into the school curriculum within Citizenship lessons.

I know the greens like people having pointless qualifications for the sake of it, and them only needing about 5 minutes work, but I think this takes the biscuit.

I support additional focus on financial planning, but I'd rather see that blended into a mixture of maths and citizenship.

As mentioned, this could help form part of any good Cultural Studies/Citizenship type lessons students have, but not as a qualification.

Include it as an essential element in some sort of compulsory citizenship course. Citizenship education in this country needs a rethink and this might be the first step to doing so.
