Mulgrave’s mission is to inspire excellence in education and life and we invest significantly in the professional development of our faculty and staff. Our staff have access to international-standard opportunities through IB, CIS, and CAIS as well as local networking opportunities through associations and other affiliations. In-house opportunities are also designed to focus on areas of specific importance to the school, our local and global context, and to develop internal leadership skills.
Highlights of our professional and career development programme include:
The award of an annual bursary to a faculty member to pursue an international learning experience
Tuition support for faculty members pursuing education-related Masters programmes
10 Professional Development days within the school calendar for faculty
2 hours per week of collaborative planning time
A supportive annual review and development process
An in-house leadership development programme
Extensive opportunities for additional leadership and positions of responsibility
Opportunities to participate in innovative and burgeoning educational practices as well as schoolwide committee efforts on focus areas such as sustainability, student wellbeing, and Indigenous teaching and learning
In our experience, the best professional development is ongoing, experiential and collaborative. It must be derived from a desire to learn about how different children learn and how to best inspire them.John Wray, Mulgrave's Head of School

"I love Mulgrave because it is a place where I can share my passion for my culture and language with everyone I meet. I enjoy teaching here because I can see the world from the various perspectives that my students bring with them. They come from such different countries and cultural backgrounds! I bring joy to my teaching, and I love that I can spread that joy to my students."
"Every day, I am challenged, engaged, and inspired by my students. Whether discussing the interpretive nature of knowledge in a Theory of Knowledge class, demonstrating how to pitch a tent in the backcountry, or watching a soccer team celebrate a last-minute goal, the reward of my job lies in seeing students grow and develop into passionate learners, ready to positively influence their world."
"Opportunities for growth abound as an employee at Mulgrave. Not only are we offered access to extensive professional development, but we are also encouraged to take on leadership roles in ways that are well-supported and that lead to success and career advancement. I feel fortunate to have personally benefited from these opportunities. I am grateful that Mulgrave continues to invest in me so that I can grow in my role and better serve and support our community."
