#NoWrongPath

#NoWrongPath is back and the messaging of the campaign is more important than ever.

Not only should we provide inspiration and reassurance to young people receiving their results, it’s vital that Scotland’s young people are aware of the options that are available to them. Developing the Young Workforce is inviting businesses, organisations and professionals from all over Scotland to help share this message of reassurance, help educate young people about the options that are available to them and demonstrate that there is #NoWrongPath to success.

Make sure your industry is represented by getting involved on social media this Results Day (Tuesday 8th August 2023).
