Elissa HolswichNational Higher Education Compliance Manager Brisbane


Elissa is an experienced policy and compliance specialist, having worked in the field for over 12 years. With a degree in Behavioural Science, she started out in Human Resources roles, but found she had an eye for detail and soon gained a role with the Queensland Office of Higher Education, the State higher education regulator where she worked as a Senior Policy Officer (case manager for higher education providers) for over 5 years. With the centralisation of higher education regulation in Melbourne through TEQSA, Elissa wanted to stay in Queensland and found herself working for one of her previous providers as the ‘internal regulator’, the National Compliance Manager for Endeavour College of Natural Health. After a year back in the government working with the international schooling regulation team and on a finance policy project, Elissa returned ‘home’ to Endeavour in early 2019 and has continued her earlier work liaising closely with TEQSA, ASQA, the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia and other professional bodies to ensure that the College not only meets but exceeds industry and educational standards. Elissa’s daily goal in her work is to make a real difference to the life of students and staff by offering accurate and timely compliance, governance and policy advice, and building a team of experts to support the business and see it thrive.
