#NoWrongPath Success

Thanks to everyone who has taken part in the DYW #NoWrongPath social media campaign – and congratulations to everyone who received their exam results!

As you may have already noticed, on Scottish exam results day, 8th August 2017, we promoted the message that no matter the outcome of your exam results, that there are still a lot of fantastic options to help you move forward in your future careers.

It’s important to remember that for the majority of employers who are choosing to employ someone new, grades are important, but so are other things like; honesty, punctuality, working as part of a team, being safe in the workplace and getting tasks done, on time.

As you can see from the photos below – many successful people did not take a straight, obvious or traditional path to get to where they are today. Wouldn’t it be boring – if everyone was the same, anyway?
