Inaugural National Careers Ambassador

A message from Scott Cam

It might have been more than thirty years ago that I completed my Australian Apprenticeship and became a qualified carpenter, but it was a significant achievement and put me on the career path to where I am now.

Something that is really important is to appreciate the benefits of lifelong learning and how VET can help you keep your skills and education up-to-date. Think of it as having all the right tools for the job, regardless of where your career might take you.

VET is a great way to keep up with the future of work, because its courses are driven by what employers need, making career prospects great.

VET can offer you nationally recognised training and qualifications across a range of industries.

Start a conversation — with your family, friends, or a career practitioner — about what your future could look like, and consider how vocational and education training can take you there.

Just remember — VET equals real skills for real careers — and there’s no time like NOW to take a good look at it.
