Wellbeing for Education

Lighting in educational environments must reduce visible glare to avoid discomfort among students, as well as tune the light output to their requirements, to promote wellbeing in universities, colleges and schools. From children to young adults, the spaces in which we teach are changing.

They are becoming more dynamic, more considered, more human-centric. As well as temperature, humidity and ventilation, lighting is central to providing the optimal conditions for both teacher and student. The right light - in the right place - brings about the most positive of outcomes. Where deployed with expertise, it can strike a perfect balance between natural and artificial light, implementing different light output at different times of day, thereby working in conjunction with a student’s natural rhythm.

Wellbeing in Universities

A number of studies indicate that in universities and higher education establishments, attention levels are significantly linked to light. Concentration, focus and learning retention are key to maximising academic performance, and the right lighting can help boost these essential elements among university students.

Research shows that modern, intuitive LED lighting in universities, colleges and schools can help children to overcome early-morning tiredness and boost alertness and concentration levels throughout the day.

Research shows that lighting with higher illumination levels and higher colour temperature shows positive effects on the level of concentration and/or oral reading fluency.
Lighting for People

Wellbeing in Schools and Colleges

In facilities for younger pupils, lighting helps children to reach their full potential in learning environments that are perfectly tuned to stimulate maximum concentration, cognition and creativity. What’s more, the right kind of lighting can have a really positive effect on performance and social behaviour. A calmer learning environment for pupils is often the key ingredient for lower levels of stress in the classroom, aiding teachers at work.

Wellbeing in education is a concern right across the supply chain. We work closely with architects; bursars; FMs; governors; and headteachers to optimise learning environments for future generations through perfectly lit learning spaces.

Next Steps

We work closely with all kinds of businesses, right throughout the built environment supply chain, to deliver positive change through perfectly lit workspaces. Contact us to find out how our lighting for wellbeing expertise can support your project.
