This event will be particularly beneficial to parents and carers whose young people have just left school. However, the events aren’t just for parents – we absolutely encourage young people to sign up and join the event as well!
The event will take place on Scottish Exam Results Day – Tuesday 4th August, 7:00pm – 7:30pm – and provides an opportunity to hear from a range of experts, employers and young people about career pathways and next steps.
The broadcast will be part of DYW’s wider #NoWrongPath campaign, which aims to highlight the options that are available to young people and to show that exams results are not necessarily the key to unlocking future success.
The event will be premiering on Young Scot’s YouTube and Facebook Channels – you will receive a reminder email prior to the event which will take you to the online event page.
What is #NoWrongPath?
#NoWrongPath is a social media movement which aims to provide inspiration and reassurance to young people receiving their exam results.
We recognise that some young people may be disheartened by their exam results this year, particularly in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic and the disruption that has been caused. We are therefore aiming to demonstrate to parents, carers and young people that many people in interesting job roles across Scotland may not have taken a straight, obvious or traditional path to get there.
