Nick Johns

Associate Consultant

Nick is the Director of Johns Education Consulting, and a specialist in designing and evaluating education programs for marginalised young people.

Nick has worked in the education sector for over 20 years across Primary, Secondary and Post-Secondary Education, in Australia and the United Kingdom. He has held a wide range of roles including teaching, education case management, flexible learning program leadership, project management, and research.

Nick is passionate about ensuring that all young people get a fair go in education, regardless of their background or circumstances. This has led him to work with some of the most disenfranchised young people in society, developing flexible and inclusive education approaches. Between 2010 and 2016, Nick worked with St Kilda Youth Service and Melbourne City Mission, leading program and curriculum development, and managing and supporting teams delivering secondary education to highly marginalised young people.

In 2016-17 Nick was the Project Manager for Flexible Learning Victoria, leading the development of this peak body to oversee Flexible Learning Networks across Victoria. Within this role Nick led the 'Successful Journey' project which identified measures of success for the sector. Nick is currently the Program Manager for the International Specialised Skills Institute, coordinating the Institute's International Fellowship program which supports Australians and international leaders across many sectors to undertake applied research that will benefit economic development.

Nick's consulting practice has included engagements with a range of Local Learning and Employment Networks, not-for-profit organisations and the Victorian Department of Education and Training. Nick was a key team member in Lirata’s Evaluation of Oakwood School in 2017-18.

Nick has a Masters in Adolescent Health and Wellbeing and strong research and project management experience. He works closely with key staff within government departments, school and program leaders, and young people to improve educational and wellbeing outcomes.
