#NoWrongPath is a social media movement which celebrates the range and diversity of career paths in Scotland. Established in 2017, this award-winning campaign aims to provide inspiration and reassurance to young people who are receiving their exam results.
We recognise that some young people may be disheartened by their exam results and so we are aiming to show young people that many people in interesting job roles across Scotland may not have taken a straight, obvious or traditional path to get there.
#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.
Last year, #NoWrongPath was used almost 20,000 times! Help us share this message with even more young people this year.
This Scottish Exam Results Day (Tuesday 6 August 2019), we invite you to get involved to make 2019 the biggest yet.
How to get involved:
Step 1 - Pledge your support for the campaign by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and mark Tuesday 6 August 2019 in your diary.
Step 2 - On Tuesday 6 August 2019, post a photograph of yourself holding a handwritten sign outlining your name, what you did when you left school and what you are doing now. Remember to use #NoWrongPath and tag @DYWEdinMidEast. You can download a template HERE.
Step 3 - Nominate a friend or colleague and encourage them to get involved, too!
We're looking forward to seeing your path!
