What is #NoWrongPath?
Since 2017, #NoWrongPath is a social media movement led by Developing the Young Workforce which provides inspiration and reassurance to young people receiving their exam results.
We recognise that some young people may feel disheartened by their exam results this year, particularly in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic and the disruption to both education and the job market. We are aiming to demonstrate that many people in interesting job roles across Scotland may not have taken a straight, obvious or traditional path to get there - that there is #NoWrongPath.
#NoWrongPath aims to show young people the options that are available to them and that exams results are not necessarily the key to unlocking future success.
