Emotional recovery language in FE - what’s yours?

Resilience. Recovery. Building back better. Reconnection and Re-engaging: These are common words in the current landscape of education and workplaces and was the topic of a recent SET Special Interest Group event I was invited to attend, writes Georgie Ford, Advanced Practitioner in Mental Health and Wellbeing at Weston College.

The focus is undoubtedly on the wellbeing of students and staff as we return from a global pandemic, but in this informal group one Friday lunchtime, we discussed how there must be some considerations for how the language used to brand this return can significantly impact wellbeing. Institutions with wellbeing at their heart should define a meaning of recovery that is individual to them and their authentic wellbeing purpose.
