This research was undertaken in order to investigate the problems relating to consumers' food buying practice in respect of private households, since it is clear that high food prices are one of the major causes of a decline in the quality of life of the family. The researcher's involvement in Home Economics education and specifically consumerism and in post-school education prompted the hypothesis that training for responsible buying practice may afford a solution to the problem of buying practice in respect of private households. Such training needs, although already identified, have not yet received any real attention. A literature study was undertaken as a point of departure in order to give background knowledge. This information was used to put into perspective buying practices for private households and to define a profile of the buyer. However, it was necessary to further define this field in order to ensure that validity and applicability of the findings arising out of this research. An empirical study was undertaken to test the literature against the reality found in a Cape Town suburban supermarket. Details of this study will be set out in Chapter 4 of this research. In order to establish criteria for the training programme above, curriculum design had to be based on didactically sound principles. At the outset a suitable model for adult-learners was selected. This model consisted of an analysis phase, design phase, implementation phase and evaluation phase.
