As a natural extension of his teaching, writing and acting careers, Ned has been an official and unofficial mentor to many teachers, writers and actors.
Not only does he bring thirty years experience as a
writer and an actor to the table he is a teacher by trade and therefore is experienced at providing people with professional support.
He has mentored many teachers and his book,
Playground Duty is regarded as an excellent vehicle for mentoring teachers.
Ned has also mentored a number of program directors
for the highly successful Indigenous mentoring program, AIME.
“Playground Duty deserves to be on the compulsory reading list in every teacher education course in Australia.”
