Nuffield Home Economics: people and homes
People and Homes was one of the four topics that featured as a separate area of study in the Nuffield Home Economics course for students aged 14–16. Students were encouraged to recognise the inter-relationships between people and their home environments. The topic drew together themes which had been studied in the three other topics in this series: Food science, Nutrition, and Fibres and fabrics, and also built on the People and homes section of the Basic Course.
