Han Worsley

Education Co-ordinator

Han is a passionate educator, gender inclusivity advocate, and public speaker. Growing up on the family farm north of Nullamanna NSW, population 40, has driven Han’s passion for rural and remote communities.

Han recently graduated from the University of Canberra with a Bachelor of Primary Education (STEM) and the Chancellor’s Commendation Award for the highest GPA. Prior to stepping into the Education Coordinator role at CUCSM, Han was the CEO of Country to Canberra, a not-for-profit supporting rural and remote young women and non-binary people, and was a primary teacher at Jindabyne Central School and the Finigan School for Distance Education. Han loves volunteering and working to create vibrant rural communities, and in their spare time, gets outdoors! Whether it’s hiking, biking, swimming, horseriding, or skiing - it’s all on the list. You’ll also find them tending to a solid houseplant collection, drawing native flowers of the alpine, and poorly playing a variety of musical instruments.

Han is excited to bring their passion for community and their teaching experience to the role - and can’t wait to meet all the wonderful students and community members of CUCSM.
