Our Team

Nadine Holland

Centre Manager

Nadine trained to be a primary teacher but her professional journey has been mostly focused on adult education. After completing university, she began working in the vocational training sector and in 1998, she joined the NSW Police Force where after a stint in general duties, she worked at the NSW Police Academy with new recruits.

In 2012, Nadine left the NSW Police Force, and relocated to Cooma, where she commenced her role as the Senior Correctional Education Officer at Cooma Correctional Centre. In 2019, she joined Country Universities Centre as the Centre Manager of CUC Snowy Monaro.

Nadine's transition from being a primary school teacher then adult education and her extensive experience in the NSW Police Force and Corrective Services NSW have shaped her career, allowing her to make a meaningful impact on the lives of many students in various capacities.
