The Field Centre acts as a hub for collaborative research into Ruskin Mill Trust’s educational method and its underpinning influences. Our research programme is designed to enhance both our therapeutic teaching methods and the skills and competence of our staff team, so that we improve educational and life outcomes for our students. 

Education and Training Programmes

Our practical programmes are aimed at supporting the development of the whole human being through an interdisciplinary approach, situated in professional contexts.

Our portfolio of taught programmes and workshops embody the principles of our Practical Skills Therapeutic Education method (PSTE).
