Introducing Mulberry College of Education


The Mulberry College of Education

We know students achieve better when the staff around them are motivated and highly qualified. The Mulberry College of Education was established to make this a reality for everyone working with us by providing a rich culture of professional learning, reflective practice and self-evaluation.

Our ethos of life-long learning is not just for students. We are committed to encouraging teaching and support staff to engage in professional dialogue about learning; we promote collaboration, experimentation and research into how we can best serve the needs of our students.

We support staff to focus on solutions, remove barriers and inject life into learning by using resources differently, trialing alternative environments for learning and by utilising different styles and structures.
