Business owner, former apprentice and television presenter Scott Cam has been named the National Careers Ambassador.
As National Careers Ambassador, Scott will help promote the importance of career information, both when starting out and at key transition points throughout a career.
Scott will also help the National Careers Institute promote the variety of career pathways available, including vocational education and training (VET), something he’s well placed to do as a VET graduate.
Scott was appointed by the National Careers Institute, a new national organisation tasked with helping Australians make career decisions by strengthening and simplifying the careers information available to them.
The National Careers Institute is part of the Government’s $525 million skills package Delivering Skills for Today and Tomorrow to improve the VET system.
The Institute will work with industry, governments, employers, schools and tertiary providers to better connect information about learning, training and work pathways.
The National Careers Institute is co-designing its role, priorities and projects through a range of interactions - including an online Engagement Hub (e-Hub).
