He's used to tackling big projects, but Scott Cam's latest gig might be his most ambitious yet.

Scott Cam will inspire the next generation of tradespeople in his new role as Australia's first National Careers Ambassador, helping young Australians take advantage of surging demand for skilled workers.

Many also questioned why the government chose to create this paid role for an already-wealthy celebrity, when public funding was sorely needed for vocational education and training.

"Scott Cam is proof that undertaking a trade can be a very valuable, rewarding and successful career choice, and there are plenty more who can tell a similar story to Scott", said Morrison.

"Today's announcement by the Prime Minister and the Minister for Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business, Michaelia Cash, reinforces the change in approach now being taken by the Government to ensure vocational education and the careers on offer are seen by young people, their parents and educators, as the pathway to an inspiring and long term career", she said.
