What is #NoWrongPath?
Launched in 2017, #NoWrongPath is a social media movement led by DYW, which provides inspiration and reassurance to young people receiving their results.
We recognise that some young people may feel disheartened by their results. 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 - and that there is #NoWrongPath.
#NoWrongPath aims to show young people the options that are available to them and that results are not necessarily the key to unlocking future success.
