Ruskin’s Rookery building which is now the Ruskin College Academic Building well known as Ruskin Hall Oxford as an independent educational institution. It established in 1899. The college has mission to offer educational opportunities to adults and to change the individuals anxious along with the communities, groups and societies from which they originate, the only change having been to personalize the language (away from ‘the excluded’, who do not sound like people) in line with growing equalities awareness. The mission is the first goal, that of giving individuals a second chance in education, continues to be achieved by admitting those with few or no formal qualifications to courses of study that can result in, or lead on to, university-level qualifications. The second goal, the transformational element is evidenced by the fact that the most recurrent thing former students say about Ruskin is that it changed their lives.
