#NoWrongPath is a social media movement which aims to provide inspiration and reassurance to young people receiving their exam results.
We recognise that some young people may be disheartened by their exam results this year particularly in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic and the disruption that has been caused, so we are aiming to demonstrate to 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.
Pledge your support for the campaign and mark
Tuesday 4 August 2020 (Scottish Exam Results Day) in your diary.
On Tuesday 4 August 2020, 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.
Nominate a friend or colleague and encourage them to get involved, too!
