#NoWrongPath – Share your story on Tuesday 6th August
16th July 2019
Circular Glasgow is proud to once again be supporting Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) and their award-winning campaign
Now in its third year, the digital campaign showcases the range and diversity of career paths that are followed after school. Receiving exam results can be a mixture of joy and excitement but also disappointment and anxiety. DYW’s aim is to promote the message that many people in interesting job roles across the country may not have taken a straight, obvious or traditional path to get there and that exam results do not necessarily define your ultimate destination.
There will be many people, for example, working in jobs relating to the circular economy who started out in a completely unrelated role. Just look at Ellen MacArthur who was a record-breaking sailor before setting up the Ellen MacArthur Foundation focusing on accelerating the transition to a circular economy.
We hope as many of our contacts can get involved in the campaign as possible and help support our young people by sharing your journeys. As part of this year’s campaign, the DYW team have launched a new, dedicated website – www.nowrongpath.scot – where you can find out exactly how to get involved. The website will also feature a hub of resources, support and advice for young people to show the breadth of options available to them.
Last year, almost 12,000 people took part in #NoWrongPath and the team are looking to spread the message to even more young people this year. Make sure to visit the website, share your path on exam day (Tuesday 6th August) and help show our young people that their exam results do not need to define their future.
Developing the Young Workforce is an initiative of Glasgow Chamber of Commerce and is the Scottish Government’s national strategy for strengthening links between businesses and education. For more information, visit their website here.
