The Federal Government’s latest Employer Satisfaction Survey (ESS) saw La Trobe receive an overall employer satisfaction rating of 88.1 per cent for 2020 to 2022 – well above the national average of 84.8 per cent.
Additionally, La Trobe ranked second in Victoria and fourth across all Australian universities for technical skills, with 96.6 per cent of employers satisfied with La Trobe graduates’ technical skills.
Again, this result is well above the national average of 93.5 per cent.
La Trobe Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Students) Professor Jessica Vanderlelie said these strong results reflected the University’s focus on helping students prepare for workplace success throughout the course of their studies.
More than 16,000 students were engaged in the program in 2022.
