Nikki Bonus is Australia’s leading provider of wellbeing and social emotional learning programs for young people. She is an entrepreneur, influencer, presenter and creator of the Life Skills Group whose mission is to equip as many young people as possible with the skills they need to thrive in the modern world.
For more than a decade, Nikki’s team of 80 teachers has worked across 600 schools, reaching 500,000 primary school children, to build a continuing evidence base of what works for school communities.
In 2016 Nikki founded Life Skills Go as a digital solution to significantly expand access to social emotional learning in schools across the world. This is a practical response to the OECD and World Economic Forum’s increasing calls for social emotional learning to be mandated alongside core academic subjects.
Life Skills GO is taking 21st Century Learning to the next level by delivering measurable social, emotional and physical skills through education technology. This platform is the digital evolution of Life Skills Group’s in-school social, emotional and physical learning programs, which has been successfully running in NSW primary schools since 2009.
The platform delivers and measures the mandated skills needed to thrive in the 21st Century as well as reporting on wellbeing in real-time. It is fun and engaging for students in years K-6 and provides hundreds of curriculum-aligned resources for educators to confidently teach the skills of social, emotional and physical learning.
There will be a keynote presentation followed by Q&A
