Via Zoom Edward Tudor, Executive Director
Melbourne Indigenous Transition School

Edward is the founding Executive Director of the Melbourne Indigenous Transition School (MITS) where he has been responsible for the establishment, opening, management and strategic vision of MITS. Prior to MITS, Edward was a mergers & acquisitions lawyer with law firm King & Wood Mallesons, with experience in corporate governance, project management and commercial legal advice.  Edward was KWM’s first Integration Secondee to its Beijing office following the firm’s merger with KWM China in 2013.

Edward is driven by a belief in the value and importance of equitable access to education for all young people, in particular young Indigenous people from remote and regional communities.  Choice and opportunity is an essential part of this equity – whether that choice is to study at home, or away from home.  In his role with MITS Edward seeks to model the MITS values of Respect, Courage, Culture and Care.  He is excited to join the IEBA Board to advocate for young people and their families who choose education away from home.
