Launched in 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. 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.


Step – 1
Pledge your support for the campaign and mark Tuesday 8 August 2023 (Scottish Exam Results Day) in your diary.

Step – 2

On Tuesday 8 August 2023, 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 @DYWScot on social media 

Step – 3
Nominate a friend or colleague and encourage them to get involved, too!
