I read with excitement last week about a long-lived campaign to make PSHE in schools compulsory, finally coming to fruition. Excited because it reminded me of when I used to teach it in South London and excited because since then, having set up a social enterprise, I’m excited about getting involved again. Just about every young person we train on our Tenancy & Independent Living Skills (TILS) course tells us that everyone should do our course and what their education lacked was a ‘curriculum for life’. Our young people tell us that they come out of school with lots of ‘stuff’ they never use. On the other hand no-one has told them how debt and APR works or how to understand a tenancy agreement. I’m not suggesting that the other ‘stuff’ they learn isn’t useful, but can’t claim not to be excited at the prospect of taking our unique delivery into schools. We want all young people in schools to benefit from our delivery in budgeting, bills, shopping around for utilities, understanding housing options, running a home and loads more so they feel prepared for adult life.
