JOHNS EDUCATION CONSULTING
Getting Youth Engagement Right
Johns Education Consulting helps education, government and community organisations to create positive connections with all young people. Drawing upon over thirty years of experience in the education sector, we are experts at creating solutions for organisations to support vulnerable young people who have barriers to learning and require additional provision to succeed.
“Early in my career, I was fascinated when primary school students were already labelled as the ‘naughty kid’. How had they got to this point so early in life? As my career progressed, I became increasingly interested in kids who end up at the fringes of and excluded from, our education system.”
Nick Johns - Director
Our background working with some of the most marginalised youth in Australia helps us to understand new ways that organisations can better engage with young people from all backgrounds. We believe that the right approach can help to break the link between disadvantage and poor education outcomes, and create the conditions to help all young people grow and succeed.

TESTIMONIAL - "Our program works with a cohort of learners with complex needs and our challenge was to develop a flexible learning framework to be delivered by volunteers. Nick Johns' vast experience with education design for marginalised and disadvantaged youth allowed him to fully understand the problem we were dealing with. Nick adopted a methodological process to data collection and appreciated the importance of extensive stakeholder consultation. Nick's personable style and respectful inquisitiveness demonstrated a high level of empathy and care for our members' learning needs.
Due to Nick's good project management skills and learning design expertise, he was able to meet our ambitious project milestones and deliver a well researched and considered framework for our consideration. Nick's ability to openly consult and check in ensured a proposal that was well aligned to our project brief. We look forward to the opportunity to have an ongoing working relationship with Nick."
