For over 30 years, Ruskin Mill Trust has provided Specialist Independent Education to children, young people and adults, drawn from the inspiration of Rudolf Steiner. The Trust has developed a method from this: Practical Skills Therapeutic Education, which contributes to supporting young people in overcoming barriers to learning, to move on to becoming skilful and later on, to contribute to the community. The Trust operates nine centres across England, Wales and Scotland.
The Trust has more recently been asked to work internationally, with sister projects in the US, China and Hungary. The Trust’s work is also subject to rigorous research, with partnerships at Inland Norway University in Lillehammer for a Master’s course in Special Education (Practical Skills Transformative Learning), and further partnerships at PhD level at the University of Hallam, Sheffield, the University of Coventry and the University of Exeter.
Research takes place at The Field Centre, the home for the Trust’s research. In May 2019, a new initiative was inaugurated, to triangulate Goethean science through a collaborative partnership between England, Wales and Scotland. Goethean Science is the underpinning methodology of the Trust’s work
