Homemaker Course Outline.
This course outline is intended to assist the instructor in the development of a curriculum for a homemaker program by specifying one component of the curriculum--the objectives. These objectives, or competencies expected as outcomes for student performance on completion of the program, describe the capabilities an individual must demonstrate in order to meet the expectations for a homemaker working for both non-profit and proprietary agencies in British Columbia. Introductory material describes the role of the homemaker and the goal of homemaker training. The course outline is organized into seven major competency groups or tracks: prepare and serve nutritious meals; promote household safety and cleanliness; provide assistance in activities of daily living; communicate with clients, family, and others; work responsibly; handle emergency situations; and promote activity and positive mental health and help meet human needs. Each track is then organized into many different skills. The following information is provided for each skill: objective, criteria (basic standards or indicators of acceptable performance of the objective), and learning tasks (knowledge, skills, and attitudes that help the learner to meet the objective). A skill profile chart is appended. (YLB)
