TLE IV: Introduction

TLE...THE...HE...Domestic Science

This course has evolved throughout the years. Normally offered to girls to obtain social graces and mastery of the household, Domestic Science later on became Home Economics. Afterwards, it became Technology and Home Economics. Today, it is Technology and Livelihood Education. The course content is similar to the three subjects also offered in American secondary schools. These are Family and Consumer Science (home economics), Business Education (entrepreneurship), and Technology Education (pre-engineering).
Fourth Year TLE is designed to develop and reinforce students' values, attitudes, and skills in the world of work through the practical application of the principles and techniques taught in Home and Family Economics, Agricultural Arts and Technology, Fishery Arts and Technology, Industrial Arts and Technology, and Entrepreneurship.
