Turn Houses Into Loving Homes
“Making Houses into Beautiful Home“
There’s a difference. In the words of Jill Savage, author of Professionalising Motherhood:
“Homemaking is the deliberate cultivation of beauty and productivity in family relationships. Homemaking is about helping your family feel loved and comforted. Homemaking is about celebrating each other, and about caring for each other, as well as for your friends and extended families and even the occasional stranger. Anyone can keep house. Not everyone bothers to make a home.”
Kenvale College’s Home Management department offers a selection of courses that range from special interest individual ‘Home and Lifestyle’ topics through to our more comprehensive Home Management Diploma. The courses are open to everyone from young single professionals to those who have a growing family of their own, to retirees.
No prior learning, knowledge or experience is required.
Home & Lifestyle Short Courses
We are all spending more time in our homes cooking, decorating, gardening, sewing, engaging in DIY projects, juggling home finances, and trying to manage our time. Our ‘Home and Lifestyle’ short courses are designed with all of this in mind and are a perfect way to learn a new skill or brush up on those you already have.
Home Management Diploma
Kenvale’s Home Management Diploma is a unique and innovative course which helps students rediscover the value and impact of the family home. The course focuses on creating happy, peaceful and fulfilled homes; places where each family member feels comfortable and has a sense of belonging. The Diploma aims to channel both the practical and philosophical aspects of managing a home.
The practical ranges from maintenance, cooking and speed cleaning. The Philosophical delves into the appreciation of beauty, creating an atmosphere for celebrations, fostering authentic relationships and family traditions. The significance of this course lies at the core of the college ethos. We believe that those providing this care are not just undertaking a series of material tasks, which may seem insurmountable at times. Rather, they are affirming human dignity, humanising society and shaping culture. It delivers to students the ability to differentiate both, in identity and action, the difference between housekeeping and home making.
