La Trobe, Deloitte open Digital Operations Centre

La Trobe University and Deloitte are aiming to address Australia’s digital and technology skills shortages with a new Digital Operations Centre at La Trobe’s Bendigo campus in regional Victoria.

The new centre will be designed to support the delivery of services to Deloitte’s Australian client base, while also providing hands-on learning opportunities for students and workers transitioning into technology-related roles.

The centre is expected to create local employment opportunities for graduates and workers in the region once it opens during the first half of 2024, and the goal is to expand the facility to create up to 200 local jobs.

La Trobe University Vice-Chancellor Professor John Dewar said the company’s partnership with Deloitte reflects the university’s commitment to producing skilled job-ready graduates.

“The need for digital innovation has never been greater and the opening of the new Digital Operations Centre in partnership with Deloitte reflects La Trobe’s commitment to producing highly employable graduates, who can immediately address critical digital and technology workforce shortages,” he said.

“We are very proud of our deep connections to the Bendigo community and our commitment to world-class education in regional Australia.”

Dewar added that as well as the new centre, the partnership with Deloitte will include more initiatives aimed at helping Australia keep up with the pace of technology-driven change in the era of generative AI.
